Level of Arterial Ligation in Rectal Cancer Surgery: Low Tie Preferred over High Tie. A Review

By Marilyne M. Lange, Mark Buunen, Cornelis J. H. van de Velde and Johan F. Lange

Abstract

Consensus does not exist on the level of arterial ligation in rectal cancer surgery. From oncologic considerations, many surgeons apply high tie arterial ligation (level of inferior mesenteric artery). Other strategies include ligation at the level of the superior rectal artery, just caudally to the origin of the left colic artery (low tie), and ligation at a level without any intraoperative definition of the inferior mesenteric or superior rectal arteries
