This video demonstrates a technique for colonic interposition to restore enteric continuity after a failed Ivor-Lewis esophagectomy, with “supercharging” of the colonic conduit performed via additional arterial inflow and venous outflow.

Because of the major developments in the treatment of esophageal cancer in recent decades, the authors of this study conducted it at a tertiary referral center to determine if long- and short-term survival rates had improved for patients who underwent esophagectomy from 1993 to 2018.

Although laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication is the most common procedure for hiatal hernia (HH) repair, HH recurrence because of the breakdown of the hiatoplasty and intrathoracic migration of the wrap has been reported as a common mechanism of failure after primary repair.

It’s already halfway through 2022. To celebrate, we’ve rounded up the six most popular thoracic videos published so far this year.

This video displays a modified Ivor Lewis Esophagectomy technique that minimizes postoperative leak and eradicates stricture.

An esophagectomy is the treatment for end-stage achalasia. The instrumentation and optics of the robotic platform in this video allowed for a minimally invasive direct and complete mobilization of the thoracic esophagus with relative ease.

Robotic Ivor-Lewis esophagectomies can be interesting procedures. This is especially true if one is performing it after a previous placement of a laparoscopic gastric band. This video demonstrates how to perform this procedure.

We present a case of a contained anastomotic leak after robotic Ivor Lewis esophagectomy that was treated with endoluminal vacuum therapy.

Although the standard of care in the West for regionally advanced esophageal cancer entails induction therapy, this is routinely not the case in China. This randomized trial involving over 450 randomized participants to induction therapy (vinorelbine, cisplatin, 40 Gy RT) followed by resection vs resection alone.

Data from the Esodata project used more than 8,000 patients undergoing esophagectomy for cancer to develop a risk prediction score for 90-day mortality.  Development and validation groups were used.  There were 10 variables that emerged as significant predictors, and weighted values were developed into the model.  The model identified 5 risk levels f
