Status post Ivor Lewis procedure.
Left pleural drain.
An Ivor Lewis procedure is typically undertaken for distal esophageal malignancy.
The stomach is 'pulled' into the thoracic cavity giving a distinct appearance on swallow studies, with the rugal folds of the stomach evident.
This shows normal post operative appearances.
