Surgical treatment of redundancy after retrosternal esophagocoloplasty

Department of Thoracic Surgery “La Sapienza” University, Rome, Italy

In a small number of patients, symptoms are disabling and might require reoperation. This article describes the surgical treatment of a 54-year-old male presenting with severe dysphagia, malnutrition and recurrent aspiration pneumonia, progressively developed 30 years after esophageal replacement with retrosternal ileocolonic interposition for caustic strictures.
