In 2 patients with advanced cervical esophageal cancer invading the trachea, total laryngoesophagectomy with resection of the posterior portion of the trachea and lymph node dissection of the bilateral neck and superior mediastinum was carried out. The partial defect in the trachea was repaired with a platysma musculocutaneous flap. A permanent tracheostoma, composed of the tracheal remnant anteriorly and the platysma musculocutaneous flap posteriorly, was made just over the manubrium sterni.
