Abstract

Totally endoscopic two stage (laparoscopic and VATS) esophagectomy for carcinoma of the esophagus is a well-established procedure. There are currently many methods to perform the intrathoracic esophagogastric anastomosis by VATS. This article describes a totally hand sewn VATS intrathoracic esophagogastric anastomosis technique in a 64-year-old female with a T2N0M0 adenocarcinoma of the lower third of the esophagus.
