Staple line reinforcement to reduce leakage in open surgery for Zenker's
diverticulum? A case report and literature review
A linear stapler was used to reduce the leakage rate during a Zenker’s
diverticulum diverticulectomy. However, staple line reinforcement was
not used, and leakage occurred. The efficacy of staple line
reinforcement in the literature was unclear; however, reinforcement may
be necessary for Zenker’s diverticulum cases.
