Figure 1: (a and b) The esophagus was pulled up in the neck and was transected in the neck, so as to ensure at least a 6-cm length for the posterior anastomosis, i.e., between the posterior wall of the gastric conduit and the posterior wall of the remnant esophagus. (c) The anterior anastomosis between the esophageal remnant and the gastric conduit was transversely placed at least 2–3 cm below and across the posterior staple line. (d) The esophagogastric anastamosis being wrapped with the part of the greater omentum that was harvested alongside the gastric conduit
