Peripheral endothelial dysfunction in patients suffering from acute schizophrenia: a potential marker for cardiovascular morbidity?
Between August 1984 and August 1987 77 free intestinal grafts were transplanted in our Department of otorhinolaryngology using microvascular anastomoses. These reconstructions were necessary after tumour resections in the oral cavity, in the pharynx, and the cervical oesophagus. Patients, operative technique, perioperative treatment, and complications are described. The definition of oncologic results is still problematic. Only trends have been discovered. In conclusion, complications, functional results, and the advantages of free intestinal grafts are discussed.
