BACKGROUND Postoperative anastomotic strictures produce significant morbidity after esophagectomy. Previous reports have described a variable association between the diameter of the circular end-to-end anastomosis (EEA) stapler commonly used in esophagogastric anastomoses and the incidence of stricture formation. Stapler technology has improved. We investigated an association between stapler diameter and the incidence of postoperative anastomotic strictures in a contemporary series. This has… CONTINUE READING
