Preservation of replaced left hepatic artery during robotic-assisted minimally invasive esophagectomy: A case series.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Finding of a significant replaced left hepatic artery (RLHA) during esophagectomy is relatively rare, with an incidence of approximately 5%. Sparing of the artery may be required to avoid complications of liver ischemia. Robotic assistance during esophagectomy may provide a technically superior method of artery preservation with minimally invasive… (More)
