With this procedure, an esophagojejunostomy (EJS) is performed as with the R-Y technique, and duodenojejunostomy is added about 20 cm distal from the EJS.9 At our hospital, most surgeons prefer to perform a standard R-Y reconstruction with a circular stapler used for the EJS, while the DT reconstruction is becoming more and more a part of standard surgical practice.
