Case Discussion on Complication of Esophageal Resection
Technically difficult operations include esophageal resection and gastrointestinal continuity restoration. Morbidity and mortality rates are influenced by a variety of variables, including patient comorbidities, surgical technique, and hospital/surgeon volume. The total incidence of postoperative complications ranges from 20 to 80%, and they can be either systemic (such as pneumonia or cardiac infarction) or surgical procedure-specific (such as anastomotic leaks or recurrent laryngeal nerve damage). The majority of individuals (16–67%) who experience postoperative problems have pulmonary issues.
