AbstractPharyngolaryngo-oesophagectomy with pharyngogastric anastomosis was described more than 25 years ago. Since then is has been employed for the treatment of cancers of the hypopharynx, cervical oesophagus and larynx. Results of recent reports showed a wide variability. Our previous report of 157 such operations gave a significant morbidity and overall hospital mortality rate of 31 per cent. In the 6-year period between 1980 and 1985, 91 patients underwent this operation. The morbidity and mortality rates gradually decreased to 30 and 5 per cent respectively. Changes in the indications for the operation resulted in a reduction in the number of procedures performed in recent years. Resection of the oesophagus for cancers of the pharyngolaryngeal region is indicated only when there is actual oesophageal involvement, and would be the prime indication of pharyngogastric anastomosis.
