FREITAS, Patrícia Maria Coletto et al. Canine cervical esophagus repair using of free autograft intestinal segment without epithelium and lamina propria of the mucosa. Cienc. Rural [online]. 2002, vol.32, n.3, pp. 445-450. ISSN 0103-8478. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-84782002000300013.
Twelve dogs were allocated in two groups with same number of animals and submitted to removal of a 3.0 x 3.5cm piece of the cervical esophagus. The incision was occluded with a autograft of free intestinal segment without epithelium and lamina propria of the mucosa, with separate simples points using poliglactina 910 line. Animals of the group 1 were observed for 15 days post-surgery, and the animals from group 2, for 30 days. Epithelization and discreet stenosis in the place of the graft with invasion of dense conjunctive tissue, rich in collagen fibers was noticed. The autograft free intestinal segment was efficient in the repair of ruptures in the cervical segment of the canine esophagous.
