Resumen

BRAGHETTA M, Italo et al. Minimally invasive surgery for esophageal tumors. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2015, vol.67, n.1, pp.21-28. ISSN 0718-4026.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-40262015000100004.

Background: Minimally invasive surgery reduced the incidence of postoperative complications. Many benign or malignant esophageal diseases can be treated with this technique. Aim: To report our experience with the technique in the treatment of esophageal tumors. Material and Methods: Analysis of a cohort of 85 patients with esophageal tumors aged 28 to 82 years (59 males). Sixty seven had esophageal cancer, 14 had leiomyomas or esophageal stromal tumors and four had duplication cysts. All were subjected to minimally invasive surgery. Short and long term results were recorded. Results: Forty three percent of patients with cancer had complications and 2.9% died. No complications were recorded among patients with stromal tumors or duplication cysts. Conclusions: Minimally invasive surgery is a feasible and safe therapeutic approach for patients with esophageal tumors.

Palabras clave : Minimally invasive surgery; esophagus; tumors.
