Description
Neoplasm of a colonic graft after esophageal reconstruction is rare. We treated a colon cancer patient who developed malignancy in a colonic graft after esophagectomy and reconstruction through a retrosternal route. A male had undergone esophagectomy in his 50s due to a benign esophago-bronchial fistula. His dysphagia became exacerbated 20 years later, and further examinations showed a circumferential tumor on the esophago-colonic anastomosis. He underwent resection of the colonic graft adenocarcinoma with median sternotomy after neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Gastric tube reconstruction was performed through a retrosternal route. This report should be informative in terms of making decisions from an initial reconstruction to follow-up and choosing a therapeutic strategy for colonic graft cancer in the future.
