Atlas of Minimally Invasive Surgery in Esophageal Carcinoma

Esophageal cancer remains both a life-threatening disease and an everyday challenge for both patients and surgeons. Controversies regarding its management are prevalent, creating con- sion and uncertainties. Preoperative mortality and morbidity, limited overall and disease-free survival, and dismal prognosis make decision making regarding the choice of management dif? cult. Prof. Puntambekar is an enthusiastic surgeon, full of energy and inspiration. This young colleague offers contemporary possibilities for management of esophageal carcinoma. Prof. Cuesta is an experienced surgeon working in Europe. These two authors have compiled their work in this atlas and enrich the reader with experience encompassing two different c- tinents. This book is an update of novel surgical techniques of combined thoracoscopic and laparoscopic approach in minimally invasive management of esophageal carcinoma. Prof. Puntambekar’s outstanding experience and expertise in this ? eld is fully illustrated in this book in a step-by-step description of the operative procedures. This book should be regarded as a landmark for the surgical management of esophageal carcinoma. The book is distinctive and the technical steps are original, re? ecting a deep knowledge of the regional anatomy and a unique ability of visual and operative orientation.

Surgery of the Esophagus

This atlas provides a thorough overview on current surgical strategies in the treatment of esophageal diseases. The first part of this atlas is focused on basic diagnostic tools, indications and preoperative work up.

Surgery of the Esophagus

While a surgeon many decades agotreated diseases from headtotoe, this concept has evolved, and today some degree of specialization is the rule worldwide. In many countries various boards for sub-specializations are designed, and after a broad training in general surgery, many young surgeons move on further into a specific field. Knowledge of anatomy and precise surgical technique remain the foundation of high quality surgery. A knowledgeable surgeon, equipped with excellent theore- cal and clinical skills, will only be accomplished when he or she masters the - erative techniques of the practice of surgery. The legacy of an academic surgeon or a surgical teacher relies in great part onthe transmission of his or her surgical abilities. Significant influence on the development in esophageal surgery arises from the surgical understanding of the anatomical and functional structures of the esophagus as well as the ongoing developments in the multidisciplinary m- agement in this challenging field of surgery. In bringing forth this atlas, we were motivated by the desire to create a comp- hensive and educational atlas on esophageal diseases, emphasizing all details of pathophysiologies, diagnostic strategies, pre- and postoperative management, and operative techniques covering minimally invasive and open procedures ranging fromstraightforward tomore complex procedures.
