About the book

Esophageal Surgery - Current Principles and Advances will serve as a state-of-the-art reference in the rapidly changing field of management and treatment of both malignant and benign esophageal disorders. Esophageal disorders are common in the general population and can be associated with significant morbidity and disability in quality of life. Several new diagnostic techniques for both malignant and benign esophageal disorders have become available in recent years. Furthermore, the multimodal approach, which includes minimally invasive surgery, endoluminal surgery, and traditional surgical in varying orders remains the main mode of treatment for most patients. Minimally invasive surgical approaches have become the standard for esophagectomy with similar outcomes with reduced morbidity in the treatment of both malignant and benign esophageal disorders. Malignant esophageal disorders treatment requires a multidisciplinary team approach and optimal therapy Endoscopic therapies, including radiofrequency ablation, endoscopic mucosal resection, and endoscopic submucosal dissection, have become the standard treatment modality for Barrett’s esophagus and early carcinoma.
