A simple technique has been described herein that will allow the surgeon to construct a temporary, totally diverting, cervical esophagostomy, and then allow the surgeon to take down the esophagostomy with primary cervical esophageal reconstitution. Crucial to the success of this method is the careful preparation of the esophagus for a tension-free reconstruction at the time of the initial diversion procedure.
