ABSTRACT
Esophageal resection remains the only curative option in high grade dysplasia of the Barrett esophagus and non metastasized esophageal cancer. In addition, it may also be an adequate treatment in selected cases of benign disease. A wide variety of minimally invasive procedures have become available in esophageal surgery. Aim of the present review article is to evaluate minimally invasive procedures for esophageal resection, especially the approach performed through right thoracoscopy.

Figure 0010: Prone position for right thoracoscopy and position of trocars according to Palanivelu et al.[40]

Mentions: Stage 1, thoracoscopic mobilization of the esophagus and mediastinal lymphadenectomy. Patients were intubated with a single endotracheal tube (with the possibility of ventilation of both lungs by left lung ventilation with intermittent ventilation of the right lung). After intubation they were positioned in prone position leaving the abdomen free to allow respiratory movements [Figure 7].
