- PreviewThe free jejunal flap has been widely used in clinical practice for the restoration of the cervical oesophagus, but a variety of complications still pose problems. The purpose of this report is to present a rare complication of the jejunal flap. A diverticulum of the jejunal segment, causing severe dysphagia, occurred 4 years after flap transfer in a 50-year-old man who underwent oesophageal reconstruction due to severe stricture following caustic ingestion. The patient was treated successfully by resection of the diverticulum.
