Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We describe a patient, who, after total esophagectomy and pharyngogastrostomy for esophageal carcinoma, developed partial gastric outlet obstruction due to extrinsic compression of the pyloric channel by metastatic liver disease. Endoscopic placement of plastic prosthesis greatly facilitated gastric emptying and provided excellent short-term palliation.
