Abstract Share this page

Surgical bypass for the palliation of dysphagia in patients with unresectable oesophageal carcinoma continues to be an option in developing countries, as the cost of a good quality endo-prosthesis is well beyond the means of most patients. One such case is presented in which an in-continuity fundic bypass (without resection of the lesser curvature and cardia, thereby not disconnecting the oesophago-gastric junction) was made with gratifying results with regard to quality of life. Awareness of this previously unreported procedure is important because it adds to the armamentarium of surgeons wanting to provide palliation for dysphagia and aspiration in patients with unresectable carcinoma of the oesophagus.
