Management of oesophageal perforation associated with benign stricture and hiatus hernia by oesophagoplasty and fundoplication

Academic Article


  • The operation of oesophagoplasty and Nissen fundoplication has proved valuable in the management of intractable peptic stricture of the oesophagus. This report concerns its use in perforation of the oesophagus in an 81-year-old woman with benign peptic stricture in whom perforation occurred during instrumentation. She made an uneventful recovery from operation and remained well and able to swallow without difficulty at three-month follow-up.
