Boerhaave Syndrome – over 290 years of surgical experiences. Can the disorder recur?
Languages of publication
Spontaneous perforation of the esophagus (Boerhaave syndrome) is a rare disease that poses a serious surgical challenge. The analysis of literature concerning the Boerhaave syndrome reveled cases of recurrent spontaneous perforation of the esophagus. The incidental nature of this condition calls for more accurate assessment of all such cases. The authors made a detailed evaluation of the data obtained from eight reports of recurrent Boerhaave syndrome. The data is presented as a summary table comparing the clinical course and outcomes of patients with the primary Boerhaave syndrome as well as recurrent Boerhaave syndrome.
