Brief Summary in Lay Language

En-bloc resection of the esophagus and reconstruction by gastric pull-up and intrathoracic anastomosis is still associated with high morbidity and mortality in patients with esophageal cancer. Postoperative complications are mainly due to anastomotic leakage. Insufficiency of the esophagogastrostomy is primarily caused by reduced vascularization and consecutive ischemia of the anastomosed gastric
fundus. Atherosclerosis is a known cause of
ischemia and arteriosclerotic plaques of the celiac trunk and arteria mesenterica superior might compromise the blood supply of the
gastric tube and esophagogastrostomy. This study is designed to detect the incidence of arteriosclerotic plaques of the mentioned arteries in routine preoperative staging computer tomography and to answer the question whether or not stenosis of the celiac trunk and the arteria mesenterica superior correlate with the occurence of anastomotic leakage after esophagectomy in cancer patients.

Brief Summary in Scientific Language

The question whether arteriosclerotic stenosis of the celiac trunk and the arteria mesenterica superior detected by routine preoperative computer tomography influence the occurence of anastomotic leakage after Ivor-Lewis-esophagectomy in patients with esophageal cancer is not answered. The aim of this prospective study will be to give an answer on incidence of stenosis of the mentioned arteries. Furthermore the study should answer wether a quantification of stenosis is possible and wether the occurence of stenosis correlate with anastomotic leakage after esophagectomy or not.
