Abstract

Minimal access surgery appears of particular value in the surgical treatment of esophageal diseases because of the disproportion between the access with its considerable invasiveness and morbidity and the surgical intervention per se which is, in the majority of cases, less severe. This obvious discrepancy makes a minimal-invasive approach an attractive alternative. The aim is to avoid a thoracotomy with its attendant morbidity and replace it with the smaller incisions used in MIC.
