Abstract
Introduction: In this case report, we describe surgical management of a schizophrenic patient who had a partially broken metallic stent which was placed for benign corrosive stricture.
Case Report: We describe surgical management of a 39-year-old male schizophrenic patient who had a partially broken metallic stent which was placed for benign corrosive stricture. An endoscopy revealed that the stent was partially broken and slipped below the strictured segment of the esophagus. Laparotomy and transhiatal esophagectomy with anastomosis on the neck were performed. In order to protect the anastomosis, wounds, and drains the patient was kept intubated.
Conclusion: Radical resection for benign strictures could prevent complications of repetitive stent placement in schizophrenic patients. Keeping the schizophrenic patient intubated under sedation could be a wise strategy to prevent inadvertent violation of the anastomosis.
