Abstract: Although the short-term results of colon interposition for replacement of the oesophagus in part or as a whole are known to be satisfactory, there have been several reports of functional problems associated with total replacement in the long-term follow-up of patients. We have retrospectively studied patients who have required revisional surgery for anatomical and functional sequelae over a 7- to 38-year period. Although the short-segment colon interpositions have been relatively trouble free, several mechanical and functional problems requiring revisional surgery have been encountered in the long-term follow-up of patients who underwent long-segment colon interposition.
