Because most surgeons perform an esophagectomy and colonic transposition as the main reconstruction method for patients with esophageal stenosis caused by swallowing corrosive materials, we report 2 cases in which ileocolonic transposition was used to treat such patients. Both patients displayed stenosis in the middle third of the esophagus. Their chief complaint was dysphagia. Ileocolonic transposition using vascularization of the Drummond and ileal arteries was followed by a prepared ileocolic graft by ligating ileocolic vessels. We performed an ileocolonic transposition esophagogastric bypass without an esophagectomy. All surgeries resulted in minimal intraoperative bleeding. Patients experienced no leakage, postoperative fistulas, dysphagia, or postoperative reflux. Three weeks after surgery, 1 patient experienced reversible hoarseness caused by extensive laryngeal-nerve manipulation. Cumulatively, ileocolonic transposition with cervical anastomosis for the treatment of patients with esophageal stenosis caused by corrosive esophageal injury can be considered to be an antireflux treatment because the ileocaecal sphincter is maintained.
