Minimally invasive repair of a late stricture in a reversed gastric tube
Journal of Pediatric Surgery
Caustic strictures; Reversed gastric tube
Ingestion of caustic agents may result in severe scarring and stricture formation of the esophagus. Reversed gastric tube esophagoplasty is an option for definitive surgical management of severe esophageal stricture refractory to medical treatment. Delayed complications from this procedure have rarely been reported. We present a case involving a patient who developed a delayed gastric stricture three decades after receiving a reversed gastric tube esophagoplasty. A historical review of the reversed gastroplasty is presented as well.
