Esophageal perforations are a serious event for their high mortality (75%). Five patients suffering from esophageal lesions were submitted to a conservative therapy, suture and drainage. Three patients died for severe clinical conditions. Mortality was 60%. In conclusion, whatever the treatment may be, mortality depends on the delay of the appropriate treatment, which sometimes is correlated to a serious clinical condition of the patient.
