pH Monitoring of Gastric Tube After Esophagectomy
Recently, an increasing number of patients with esophageal cancer who were not considered successfully treated have survived for prolonged periods. Proper selection of the tissue to be reconstructed as well as the reconstruction route is important for proper postoperative functioning. However, there have been few reports concerning acidity in the reconstructed gastric tube after esophagectomy combined with bilateral truncal vagotomy. In this study, we used pH monitoring to examine acid secretion in the reconstructed gastric tube.
