Abstract

Background: Interest for minimal invasive approach of esophagus resection is increasing. Today, a minimally invasive transhiatal esophagectomy is possible and is accepted widespread. Since cardiopulmonary changes during laparoscopic dissection of the mediastinum has not been studied yet we assessed the anesthesiological consequences of pneumothorax during laparoscopic mediastinal dissection.
