David Richardson and Dr. Roxie Albrecht join us for an in depth discussion of challenging esophageal injuries including areas of debate such as the management of injuries recognized late, the preferred methods of surgical repair and buttress as well as the role of exclusion and cervical esophagostomy for diversion.
