Abstract

Long gap oesophageal atresia presents a surgical challenge as there is insufficient length of the oesophagus to restore continuity. Oesophageal replacement is generally achieved using a conduit, taken from the stomach, jejunum or colon. Preferences of approach vary between and within surgical centres. Specific to colonic interposition, the continued growth and dilation of the interposed segment may lead to redundancy. Revision surgery in these cases is challenging and has been sparsely described in adult patients. We present two patients who had colonic interposition for long gap oesophageal atresia in infancy and who then underwent successful revision surgery in their fifth decade.
