Abstract

Background: Esophageal replacement using digestive organs such as the colon, stomach, or jejunum has been used to treat long-gap esophageal atresia and caustic esophageal strictures. Nevertheless, it presents a major challenge. Here, we report a preliminary experimental study that examined the use of a free dilated ureter as an option for esophageal substitution in a transplantation rat model.
