Abstract:

Esophageal cancer remains an important health problem mainly due to the rising incidence of the adenocarcinoma of the gastro-esophageal junction. Esophagectomy is often performed on a fragile patient with an impaired nutritional status and requires often an open thoracic approach. Minimally invasive techniques were accepted in treatment of esophageal cancer in order to decrease the morbidity and postoperative mortality. However, several limitations of conventional minimally invasive techniques (e.g. two-dimensional view, camera operator fatigue, lack of tactile feedback during the complex maneuvers) imposed the use of surgical robots in esophageal surgery. We review the literature data about the use of robotic assissted surgical techniques in esophageal surgery. The postoperative outcomes, as well technical details and learning curve and training are highlighted.
