Using transhiatal esophagectomy, the ease of performing the cervical esophagogastric anastomosis varies greatly depending on neck size, length of mobilized stomach, and adhesions from previous neck operations. We therefore have developed a technique, used in 45 consecutive patients undergoing transhiatal esophagectomy, that has simplified the technical performance of cervical esophagogastric anastomosis.
