Radical surgical treatment of carcinoma of the cervical oesophagus has always been limited by Jack of possibilities for reconstructive surgery. Different techniques have been used to bridgedefectsin this area. Recently revascularised small bowel transplants have been succesfully employed in a few cases. The purpose of the experimental study, reported in this thesis, was to develop a technique for replacing the cervical oesophagus in the dog with a revascularised ileal autotransplant and to evaluate the transplant by cinematography, oesophagoscopy, angiography and histology over a period of one year.
