Purpose. A prospective study was carried out. It compared treatment outcomes in children who underwent esophagoplasty with stomach or colon esophagoplasty.

Materials and methods. Clinical records of 172 patients who underwent esophagoplasty at N. F. Filatov Children’s Clinical Hospital No. 13 of Moscow from 2009 to 2015 were analyzed. The operated children were divided into two groups. 46 children from group 1 (basic group) aged 2 months to 13 years underwent esophagoplasty with stomach. 126 children aged 2 months to 18 years who had colon esophagoplasty were enrolled in group 2 (control group). In both groups, the majority was presented by children with atresia and corrosive strictures of esophagus. Clinical observation, esophagogastroduodenoscopy, contrast radiography, CT and MRI study, survey of patients were used to estimate direct and remote treatment outcomes.

Results. The analyzed groups were comparable for the course of the early postoperative period. The early postoperative period had no complications in 54% of cases in group I and in 54.4% of cases in group II. Recurrent surgeries for complications were more frequent in group I (23.9%) as compared to group II until signifcant indices were reached (10.3%, p = 0.04). In the comparison groups, patients’ quality of life were signifcantly different by the rate of almost any complications in the remote period. They demonstrated better quality of life for children after colon esophagoplasty.

Conclusion. Higher quality of life in children after colon esophagoplasty compared to children following esophagoplasty with stomach indicates that this is a surgery of choice in children.
