Languages of publication



In the study a subtotal videothoracoscopic and laparoscopic esophageal resection with cervical anastomosis was presented with discussion concerning the new surgical problems and positions (classical and prone) of videothoracoscopic and laparoscopic approaches. The technique of esophageal elevation during mediastinal preparation, ligation and dissection of the azygos vein, pharmacological elongation of the graft using Glucagon as well as tips regarding easier identification of the esophagus at the outlet level was described. The usefulness of the harmonic scalpel and endostaplers was stressed. Additionally, findings and outcomes were discussed.
