This Atlas comprehensively covers minimally invasive operative techniques for benign and malignant cancer surgery of the esophagus and stomach. It provides easy-to-follow instructions accompanied by a range of pictures and illustrations, as well as a collection of interactive videos to aid the reader in developing a deeper understanding of each surgical procedure. Techniques covered include minimally invasive surgical treatment for esophageal and gastric cancer including different approaches such as thoracoscopic, transhiatal, laparoscopic, and robot-assisted resections. These chapters include different types of cervical and intrathoracic anastomoses after esophageal resections, and different anastomoses and reconstructions after gastrectomy. Moreover, the Atlas includes an extensive description of minimally invasive procedures in bariatric surgery including sleeve resection, gastric bypass, biliopancreatic diversion, and others. Minimally invasive approaches for other benign pathologies such as benign tumors and treatment of gastroduodenal ulcer complications are also depicted. All chapters, written by a renowned and experienced international group of surgeons and their teams, are focused on practical step-by-step description of the techniques.
Atlas of Minimally Invasive Techniques in Upper Gastrointestinal Surgery systematically describes the most frequently performed surgical procedures of the esophagus and stomach and is a valuable resource for all practicing surgeons and trainee general surgeons dedicated to upper gastrointestinal surgery, such as bariatric and surgical oncologists.
