Total mesoesophagus excision by thoracoscopy and laparoscopy in the radical resection of esophageal carcinoma
Esophageal carcinoma is a malignant tumor with a high incidence in China. Surgical treatment is the main treatment method. Endoscopic-assisted radical resections of esophageal carcinoma have shown promising results with shorter operation times, less intraoperative blood loss, and thorough lymph node dissection (1). Our team is skilled in the total mesoesophageal excision (TME) based on thoracoscopy and laparoscopy in the radical resection of thoracic esophageal carcinoma (2).
