    The gold standard of surgical treatment of colorectal anastomotic leak is abdominal drainage of collected fluid and stoma formation. Conventional laparotomy has been the preferred approach for treatment. However, both laparoscopic surgical techniquesand endoscopic stenting have gained popularity...

    Abstract: Objective: Anastomotic leak post-gastro-esophagectomy for esophageal carcinoma remains an important issue in immediate as well as late morbidity and mortality. Several predictive factors such as patient and technical variables have been suggested with inconsistent findings. Our aim was...

    Background: Anastomotic leaks are uncommon complications following aortic surgery. To avoid the morbidity associated with a second surgical procedure, minimally invasive techniques have become increasingly popular. Purpose: To evaluate the feasibility and safety of thrombin in interventional...

    Two complications associated with esophagogastrectomy are anastomotic leak and gastroesophageal reflux. We describe here a modification of an intrathoracic esophagogastrostomy using the gastric fundus to address these issues. After completion of the esophagogastrectomy, the fundus is divided to...

    Background: The incidence of anastomotic leak and stricture after esophagectomy remains high. Gastric devascularization followed by delayed esophageal resection has been proposed to minimize these complications. We investigated the effect of ischemic conditioning duration on anastomotic wound...

    Background: Leaks following oesophageal surgery are considered to be amongst the most dreaded complications and contributory to postoperative mortality. Controversies still exist regarding the best option for the management of oesophageal leaks due to lack of standardized treatment protocols....
