As one of the frequently used thresholds identified in a systematic review done by Bijker et al [18], SBP < 90 mmHg, and duration of more than 5 min [18, 19] was used to define Intra Operative Hypotension (IOH).

Anastomotic leak was defined by a clinically diagnosed leak, and prolonged hospital stay was defined as hospital stay more than 7th post-op day.

Intraoperative blood loss, intraoperative events including arrhythmias, need for blood transfusion, need for inotropic, and/or vasopressor support were documented.

Trans Hiatal esophagectomy was preferred for mid and distal thoracic esophageal cancers and performed in 51% (n = 26) of cases. McKeown’s esophagectomy was preferred for mid and upper thoracic esophageal cancers which are at T4 stage and performed in 16% (n = 8) of the cases. Ivor–Lewis procedure was performed for 4% (n = 2) patients while 30% (n = 16) patients had Left thoracotomy approach as it was preferred for gastroesophageal junction and proximal gastric cancers. All esophagogastric anastomosis (stomach was used as a conduit in all cases) was done via the anatomical esophageal bed and with hand-sewn techniques.
