Media is any form of research output that is recorded and played. This is most commonly video, but can be audio or 3D representations.
Anastomotic complications represent a significant source of morbidity after esophagectomy. In this video, the authors demonstrate a novel “side-to-side, staple line on staple line” technique for intrathoracic esophagogastric anastomoses. This technique is designed to create a wide diameter esophagogastric anastomosis, while preserving stomach conduit blood supply.
