Abstract

Those patients with hypopharyngoesophageal cancer often sacrificed larynx before reconstruction using jejunum to restore the continuity of the digestive tract and allow oral alimentation. We retrospectively collected and analyzed three patients who underwent hypopharyngoesophageal reconstruction by free partial patch and partial tube jejunal graft transfer with reservation of laryngeal function caused by hypopharyngeal cancer invading the cervical esophagus. The partial patch and partial tube jejunal graft transfer survival rate was 100%(3/3). The larynx was reserved in the three patients. The partial patch and partial tube jejunal graft transfer is a safe and reliable choice for reconstruction of large and complex defects after pharyngectomy and cervical esophagectomy with larynx preserved.
