We developed a reliable procedure for obtaining sufficient blood flow at the anastomotic site of the gastric tube for esophageal reconstruction. By utilizing the junction between the left gastroepiploic and short gastric vessels via the splenic hilar vascular arcade, the distal portion of the gastric tube could be sufficiently nourished. The application of this technique resulted in a complete prevention of postoperative anastomotic leakage after antesternal esophageal reconstruction.
