Resumen

MARTIN GONZALEZ, Miguel A; PLACERES, Augusto Zoilo  y  PEREZ PALENZUELA, Javier. Videoassisted transhiatal esophagectomy for treatment of esophageal achalasia. Rev Cubana Cir [online]. 2012, vol.51, n.4, pp.326-331. ISSN 0034-7493.

Esophageal achalasia occasionally requires esophagogastrectomy, hence the transhiatal way is selected, preferably using minimal access and fleboextractor. The objective of this paper is to assess the use of fleboextractor as a replacement of minimally invasive transhiatal esophageal dissection in a patient with esophageal achalasia. This procedure was performed in a 37 years-old patient with disphagia, major esophageal dilation and protein-energetic undernourishment, who had been operated on twice from esophageal achalasia by using minimally invasive esophagomyotomy. The operation lasted 4 hours, without further complications and 4 day-length of stay at hospital. The minimally invasive transhiatal esophagectomy carries all the advantages of the minimum access procedure for some patients with achalasia, and the use of a fleboextractor can speed up the surgical procedure in a safe way.

Palabras clave : esophageal achalasia; esophagogastrectomy; videoassisted esophagogastrectomy.
