Abstract

A new method for double exclusion of the esophagus is presented. Temporary closure of the cervical and intraabdominal esophagus using absorbable staples allows effective healing of esophageal perforations. The procedure should be routinely combined with drainage of the periesophageal abscess. Complete recanalization of the esophagus occurs 1 to 2 weeks after operation.
