Abstract

Esophageal dissection under laparoscopic monitoring is performed during total esophagectomy to treat patients with cervical esophageal carcinoma. Using this technique, a safe esophageal dissection can be made from the surrounding mediastinal tissues. Some of the disadvantageous consequences of a blunt dissection, including the blind maneuver, may thus be prevented and various intraoperative and postoperative complications may be avoided.
