Abstract

Conduit necrosis is a rare but potentially devastating complication of oesophageal surgery and the subsequent reversal of oesophageal discontinuity can be challenging. An option for both cervical-oesophageal reconstruction and neck wound closure has been limited and less successful. We report a patient with colon conduit necrosis and cervical-oesophageal discontinuity whose cervial oesophagus was successfully reconstructed with a single-stage pedicled pectoralis major myocutaneous flap and neck wound closure.
