Abstract BACKGROUND: A new procedure for the treatment of esophageal fistula, mainly associated to the ebb esophagojejunal in patients submitted to the total gastrectomy and reconstruction with loop jejunal Rouxen-Y anastomosis is present. METHODS: The method is based in the use of probe standard enteral prolongated with drain to laminate adapted in extremity, which results in advanced positioning inside the jejunum, making the administration of enteral nutrition possible and impeding ebb esophagojejunal. RESULTS: The authors discuss the theoretical advantages of the procedure and they suggest that the treatment of esofagic fistula with probe prolonged enteral would be suitable in the treatment of the fistula esophagojejunal by preventing the ebb esophagojejunal, which would result in smaller period of duration of the fistula esophagojejunal and it would prevent the high mortality rate. CONCLUSIONS: Preliminary studies demonstrated that this is a technically easy, low cost procedure through the endoscopic use. A prospective evaluation for morbility and mortality related to the method is needed.
