Anastomotic leaks continue to be a source of considerable morbidity and mortality after esophageal resection. Careful attention to the contributing factors to the development of a leak, particularly conduit ischemia and anastomotic technique, can reduce the incidence of anastomotic complications postoperatively. Selective management of leaks, including non-operative treatment when indicated, will maximize the chance for a successful outcome.
