Tubes, Esophageal, Temporary Reconstruction

Definition : Esophageal tubes designed to bridge the gap between a pharyngotomy and esophagotomy following laryngoesophagectomy in the first step of a two-stage reconstruction of the cervical esophagus. These devices typically consist of a smooth, clear or radiopaque plastic (silicone) tube with a funnel-shaped proximal end to conform to the hypopharynx and two firm oval bands to ensure proper positioning and to prevent leakage of saliva after laryngoesophagectomy. Reconstruction esophageal tubes create a passage between a pharyngotomy and esophagotomy, facilitating the second-stage procedure and maintaining patency of both the pharyngotomy and esophagotomy.
