Abstract

It is said that esophageal reconstruction using colon interposition, which is more complicated technically, has a great advantage in terms of nutritional aspects due to the preservation of the stomach, as compared with reconstruction using a gastric tube. In order to analyze the differences of postoperative nutritional status between a gastric tube and colon interposition, the study was designed and carried out as a prospective controlled trial.
