Abstract

Patients reconstructed with free jejunal interposition had lower mortality and complications than with pharyngogastric anastomosis. Furthermore, the former seems to have better quality of life than the latter. The first choice of reconstructive strategy for hypopharyngeal circumferential defects is free jejunal interposition.
