Three cases of stenosis of a Roux loop are presented, following the replacement of the lower third of the esophagus resected for cancer. In each case fibrotic stenosis developed 6 weeks after reconstruction, which was attributed to ischemia: in one case it was due to reduced blood flow during digitalization and in the other two cases to the vascular compression of the supplying vessels because of unsatisfactory dilatation of the hiatus.
