Reconstruction of the pharynx and cervical esophagus is a surgical challenge associated with high complications, multiple-staged procedures, and prolonged hospitalizations. In a series of cases, single-stage transfer-free jejunal graft reconstructions had a 85% success rate with low complications in a series of patients who received preoperative, postoperative, and curative radiation treatment. There are advantages to this reconstruction procedure; however, there can also be complications.
