  • Look Inside

As a treatment for esophageal submucosal tumor, endoscopic enuculeation is indicated for tumors originating from lamina propria a mucosae, and thoracoscopic enucleation is indicated for tumor occurring from proper muscular layer. To make a good operative field is very important, and this is achieved by using baseball diamonds concepts and Wakabayashi's concepts. The tumor can be lifted up easily by inserting for bougie after dissecting the esophagus around the tumor. The thoracoscopic operation is very useful for benign diseases because of its less invasiveness and good cosmetic reason.
