Abstract:   (1785 Views)
In this paper, two patients with severe dysphagia and esophageal stricture secondary to epidermolysis bullosa are presented and discussed. They are siblings of an affected family. Primary resection and anastomosis had been performed previously in both patients, but dysphagia had recurred. We treated these patients with free jejunal graft to the esophagus with excellent results. Both patients are well and free of dysphagia after five years.
