One of the worst complication of a Transhiatal Esophagectomy is anastomotic leak. This is often believed to be the result of poor perfusion of the gastric conduit. At its most ischemic part, the only blood major blood supply comes from the gastroepiploic arcade along the greater curve of the stomach. We present a novel method of using ICG intraoperatively to map out these critical arcading vessels. This allows a surgeon to mark the boundaries of dissection and safely preserve perfusion to the remnant stomach.
