BACKGROUND Extensive esophagogastric devascularization (Sugiura-Futagawa operation and complete portoazygos disconnection) are excellent alternate choices for low-risk patients (Child-Pugh A-B) in whom a selective shunt is not feasible, obtaining a low postoperative rebleeding rate and a good quality of life. Esophageal transection is an important step in(More)
