To present our experiences of perioperative therapy on 7 patients suffered from hypopharyngeal carcinoma with cervical esophageal invasion.
Among the 7 patients, 6 patients had unilateral functional neck dissection, total laryngoesophagectomy and reconstruction with gastric pulling-up. One patient had gastrectomy, reconstruction with colonic pulling-up as well as radical neck dissection, total laryngoesophagectomy. Five of 7 patients have unilateral partial thyroidectomy.
All patients complained of vomiting and other abnomalities of digestion, 1 case complicated with pharyngocutaneous fistula, 1 patient developed acute renal failure, postoperatively.
It is very important to improve theraputic skill during perioperative period,which can reduce complications of advanced hypopharyngeal and cervical esophageal cancer and increase patients' survival.
