Abstract

Colon replacement for the esophagus was used successfully in 20 of 21 pediatric patients. Intrathoracic placement of the colon segment was done in 18. Careful preparation and operative experience combined to reduce operative morbidity and mortality in an unfortunate group of patients. Satisfactory long-term results have been achieved. Careful technique, attention to detail, and perfection of a single technique may be more important than performing new surgical techniques when they are reported. Colon interposition performed by the Waterston technique utilizing the transverse colon is an effective means of substitution for a diseased esophagus in children.
