A Prospective Trial to Evaluate Whether Variations in Tissue Oxygenation Are Associated With Anastomotic Leak Rates After an Ivor Lewis Esophagectomy
Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Prospective
association between tissue oxygenation (measured using the Wipox) at the anastomotic site and the incidence of anastomotic leak after an Ivor Lewis esophagectomy.
The primary objective of this observational study is to determine whether in patients undergoing Ivor Lewis esophagectomy, low levels of tissue oxygenation at the anastomotic site are associated with increased risk of anastomotic leak (AL).
