Stoma formation in cervical esophagostomy can be accomplished without tension with the use of cervical skin rotation flaps to form a skin-lined tube. This procedure was performed on six patients; salivary leakage was less, and tube insertion was easier than in patients who had standard esophagostomy procedures. We discuss the indications and contraindications for esophagostomy. (Arch Otolaryngol 105:200-202, 1979)
