Esophageal perforation is associated with significant mortality and morbidity. Its etiology is as heterogenous as modalities currently employed for its treatment. There is no clear evidence which is the treatment of choice for esophageal perforation. This is partly due to the suboptimal quality of available studies and failure to accurately report on the characteristics, treatment and outcome of these patients. Indeed, baseline, operative and outcome data are important for a better evaluation of published data and possibly for including them in meta-analyses of aggregate or individual patient data. We propose a checklist for reporting data on esophageal perforation in order to standardize reporting of data of studies on this severe condition.
