To reduce the invasiveness of radical esophagectomy, we developed a new approach: video-assisted transsternal radical esophagectomy (VATRE). This article presents the operative techniques and our initial results. In our new procedure, cervical U-shaped and longitudinal sternoabdominal incisions are made, and a complete midline sternotomy is carried out.(More)
