Conference paper


Just 60 years ago, in 1932, Oshawa reported the first successful resection with esophagogastrostomy. Thereafter, the earlier extrathoracic methods of esophagoplasty with skin tubes—which was a bypass procedure—were largely abandoned in favor of newer retrosternal or transthoracic esophagoplasty.
