Authors describe a new technique of mechanical cervical anastomosis using a new, particularly long, stapler, the ECS Ethicon. Mechanical anastomosis at neck level is difficult to perform with stapler now in use, so manual anastomosis is usually preferred. However the percentage of leakage is relatively high. The possibility of doing a mechanical anastomosis introducing the stapler through the pylorus is described. At the moment cases are too few to give a full evaluation of this new technique, but certainly it could be a valid alternative, safer and quicker, to manual anastomosis.

Abstract

Authors describe a new technique of mechanical cervical anastomosis using a new, particularly long, stapler, the ECS Ethicon. Mechanical anastomosis at neck level is difficult to perform with stapler now in use, so manual anastomosis is usually preferred. However the percentage of leakage is relatively high. The possibility of doing a mechanical anastomosis introducing the stapler through the pylorus is described. At the moment cases are too few to give a full evaluation of this new technique, but certainly it could be a valid alternative, safer and quicker, to manual anastomosis.
