    This paper reports two late complications of oesophageal replacement using the reversed gastric tube described by Gavriliu. One patient developed obstruction of the gastric tube and the other a perforation of a diverticulum within the gastric tube, both occurring more than 10 years after the original operation. The occurrence of such complications should be made known to surgeons who are contemplating using this form of oesophageal replacement.
