Abstract

Approximately 4% of patients with esophageal cancer develop a second primary malignancy in the upper gastrointestinal trunk. However, hepatectomy following esophagectomy for esophageal cancer has rarely been reported. We report the case of a 70-year-old man who underwent an esophagectomy for esophageal cancer with retrosternal gastric tube reconstruction. Nine years later, he developed hepatocellular carcinoma with tumor thrombus involving the left portal vein, and was successfully treated with left hemihepatectomy. Special attention should be paid to avoiding incidental injury of the gastric tube as well as the right gastroepiploic artery during the hepatectomy.
