Abstract

The thoracoscopic surgery for two benign esophageal diseases, esophageal leiomyoma and esophageal diverticulum, were successfully performed. Case 1 was a 37-year-old female with esophageal leiomyoma that was located at 30 cm from the incisor of the left anterior esophagus. The tumor was enucleated under the thoracoscopy, combined mini-thoracotomy for 3 cm in length. It was useful enough to rotate the left side to the right with two slings traction for better visualization of lesion site. After resection, the proper muscle layer of the esophagus was closed. Case 2 was a 70-year-old male, who complained of dysphagia because of esophageal diverticulum. It was 8 cm in size and located at 28 cm from the incisor of the right wall of the esophagus. It was also resected under the thoracoscopy, combined mini-thoracotomy for 3 cm in length. Intraluminal esophagoscope was useful to dissect safely and confirm the intralumen of the diverticulum. Its neck was divided parallel to the longitudinal axis of the esophagus by two endo-staplers. And then, the muscle layer was closed. It was suggested that esophageal leiomyoma and esophageal diverticulum were suitable for thoracoscopic surgery.
