Abstract

The treatment of staple line leaks after gastric conduit remains controversial. We present a case of 59-year-old man with distal esophagous cancer. The patient underwent Ivor- Lewis procedure with gastric conduit. The dehiscence of the staple line occured on the postoperative course. We report our experience in the management of a patient,and of the various treatment proposals.
