Free jejunal autotransplantation is a successful surgical procedure for reconstruction of the cervical esophagus in treatment of carcinoma of the pharyngoesophagus. Radiographic assessment is essential in the postoperative evaluation of these patients. Twenty-two patients with jejunal autotransplants have been followed with radiographic examinations. Eleven of them have had normal postoperative studies. Acute and delayed complications characterized by anastomotic leaks, fistulae, and strictures have been observed in the other 11 patients. The techniques of radiographic examination and the radiographic features of the normal graft and associated complications are described.
