Özet

Introduction We present a novel approach to single-incision laparoscopy-assisted gastric transposition combined with thoracoscopic esophagectomy in a child with long-segment corrosive esophageal stricture (CES). Materials and Surgical Technique A 2.5-year-old boy with a history of caustic ingestion underwent periodic esophageal dilatations at 3-week intervals, four sessions of topical mitomycin C application, and a strict antacid/H-2 antagonist therapy for 8 months. The esophageal replacement was indicated because of persistent corrosive esophageal stricture. First, thoracoscopic native esophagus dissection was performed. After gastric mobilization with single-incision laparoscopy, esophagectomy and esophagogastric anastomosis were performed through the cervical incision. There was no complication, and the patient had gained weight by the end of the 12-month follow-up. Discussion Single-incision laparoscopy-assisted gastric transposition combined with thoracoscopic esophagectomy is feasible, safe, and effective in patients with corrosive esophageal stricture.
