Antireflux cologastric anastomosis following colonic interposition for esophageal replacement
Journal of Pediatric Surgery
Colon interposition for esophageal replacement
Colon interposition is an accepted method of esophageal replacement in children. Severe symptomatic reflux has occurred in only two of our patients with colonic esophageal substitution. Formation of an antireflux submucosal gastric tunnel eliminated gastrocolic reflux in both patients without impeding normal passage of food into the stomach. © 1986.
