Abstract
A transhiatal esophagectomy without thoracotomy and esophageal reconstruction with gastric transponsition was performed in a recurrent laryngeal carcinoma spread to cervical esophagus. There were several benefits to performing this method : 1) It could be performed in one stage, took shorter operating time, and provided safe and efficient palliation in the patient with esophageal carcinoma. 2) The possible maximum surgical margin was obtained and the incidence of suture line tumor recurrence was minimized. 3) Postoperative death from anastomotic disruption and secondary mediastinitis and sepsis were virtually eliminated. 4) Clinically significant gastroesophageal reflux rarely occured.
