Abstract

Thoracoscopically assisted esophagectomy with gastric pull-up was done in a 56-year-old man with esophageal cancer. The thoracoscopic technique, including the use of intraoperative ultrasound, is discussed. The addition of thoracoscopy offers safer and more complete esophageal dissection than transhiatal blunt esophagectomy and is less invasive than conventional thoracotomy.
