ABSTRACT
Postoperative pharyngocutaneous fistulas are the relatively frequent complications of total laryngo-oesophagectomy. Despite various treatment strategies have been mentioned in the literature, ideal method for closure of the large pharyngocutaneous fistulas is still controversial. In this report we have succesfully closed a large pharyngocutaneous fistula with free dorsalis pedis flap after ablation of oesophageal cancer.
