The Hood Esophageal Reconstruction Tube is a special device
used in reconstruction and stenting of the cervical esophagus.
The tube is used after the first-stage operation to eliminate
profuse salivary leakage by way of the pharyngostoma. It
maintains a wide patent pharyngostoma and creates a trough
between the pharyngostoma and the esophagostoma to facilitate
the second-stage procedure.
The bulbous protrusions prevent displacement of the
tube upward and downward, making suturing of the tube
The Hood Intended Use and Instruction Manual, which is
supplied with each product, provides detailed information
on insertion technique, sterilization, and postoperative care.
