Case description

Herein I would like to present my techniques of minimally invasive organ-preserving surgery for stromal tumors of the abdominal esophagus.

Enucleation has been considered to be the standard surgical treatment of benign submucosal tumors (SMTs) in the thoracic esophagus. But when the tumor is large and located in the abdominal esophagus, it seems surgical treatment has not been standardized, yet, presumably because of a couple of controversies; how to repair the esophageal wall defect after resection, how to prevent postoperative stenosis, reflux disease, and/or stasis. I have been successfully approaching to this anatomically tricky place to completely remove the tumor and preserve the function of the abdominal esophagus and anti-reflux mechanisms with satisfactory operative results.
