Özet

Background Reconstruction of complex pharyngoesophageal defects presents a major challenge, particularly in soft tissue deficient and previously scarred surgical sites. In recent years, the free jejunum flap method has emerged as a reliable means of esophageal reconstruction. However, it may require cutaneous coverage with an additional flap in extensively scarred, secondary reconstructions. Prefabrication of an intestinal/cutaneous composite flap can potentially solve this problem.
