Video: Robotic assisted complete minimal invasive esophagectomy: A comprehensive video with tips for a succesful operation
M. Schiesser, P. Schneider, Presenter: M. Schiesser (Zürich)
Minimal invasive esophagectomy has become a standard procedure for esophageal cancer in many experienced centers around the world. We have developed a standardized operation technique for this complex operation in our institution. Useful tips and lessons learned from many cases over the years are presented in the video.
We perform a transthoracic esophagectomy with two field lymphadenectomy and a reconstruction using a gastric conduit and a side to side esophagogastrostomy. The abdominal part of the operation is performed by conventional laparoscopy, while the thoracic part is performed using the daVinci robotic system. The esophagogastrostomy is established using a side to side a linear stapled anastomosis technique. The defect is closed with a running double layer suture performed with the help of the robot.
Robotic assisted minimal invasive esophagectomy has become a standardized operation technique. In the video we show the crucial steps and different tricks for the succesful achievement of this operation.
