Abstract

Mucosal loss of the hypopharynx, following pharyngostome or wide resection of carcinoma, poses problems for repair. The authors emphasize a reconstructive procedure based on the use of three elements combined together in various ways: residual strip of mucosa of the posterior pharyngeal wall, a musculomucosal pedicled flap obtained from the base of the tongue, a pectoralis major musculocutaneous flap. Thus any defect of the hypopharynx can be repaired in one stage. The safety of the procedure is well tested with good clinical results and lack of complications.
