  • Blunt esophagectomy without thoracotomy has been performed in 26 patients: four with benign disease and 22 with carcinomas involving various levels of the esophagus (10 cervicothoracic, one upper third, five middle third, and six distal third). Continuity of the alimentary tract was restored by anastomosing the pharynx or cervical esophagus either to stomach (19 patients) or to a colonic graft (seven patients). Esophageal resection and reconstruction were performed in a single stage in 25… CONTINUE READING
