Abstract

Perforation of the esophagus remains a challenge to the thoracic surgeon [1]. Despite modern forms of therapy, the use of hyperalimentation, antibiotics, and better postoperative care, esophageal perforation or rupture continue to be associated with high mortality and morbitity. While the esophagus is infrequently injured as a result of external penetrating trauma in the neck, perforation due to surgical instrumentation, foreign body, or spontaneous rupture were the most common causes in the thoracic esophagus. We review here the data of esophageal perforation in the People’s Republic of China. The purpose of this study is to analyze the causes, surgical treatment, and outcome of esophageal perforation. This paper does not address the issue of postoperative leaks developing in esophageal anastomosis.
