Surgery for pharyngeal pouch.

Abstract

Diverticulectomy for pharyngeal pouch requires several days in hospital and carries a risk of postoperative fistula formation. Small to moderate sized pouches can be inverted easily. Experience with this technique has been encouraging and results are reported here. Large pouches of long standing probably should be excised rather than inverted.
