There are different surgical methods, all of which have their advantages and disadvantages. After the operation, you can expect a slight swelling in this area and slight disturbances in eating, but these should subside quickly. In the best case, all the symptoms of discomfort from before the operation are quickly resolved. However, especially in the case of large fractures and necessary operations with a cuff technique, there are also recurrences. This means that a fracture can occur again, which may have to be operated on again. It is also possible that the constriction is too severe, so that there are permanent disturbances in the intake of food and swallowing difficulties, which also have to be corrected again by an operation.
In this respect, a surgical intervention must be carefully weighed up. A good consultation with an experienced surgeon in consultation with a gastrointestinal specialist is of great importance. The advantages and disadvantages should be discussed in detail with the patient.
