Abstract

Thoracoscopic myotomy has been performed for diffuse esophageal spasm "nutcracker esophagus" and achalasia. Technical considerations for thoracoscopic long myotomy such as trocar placement, length of myotomy, extent of myotomy distal to the gastroesophageal junction, hiatal closure, fundoplication and degree of esophageal mobilization are discussed.
