In esophageal cancer, lymph nodes along the recurrent laryngeal nerves (RLNs) are thought to be highly involved. Complete dissection of these lymph nodes is recommended but there is limited working space in the left upper mediastinum and advanced dissection skills are required. We present herein a new method for lymphadenectomy along the left RLN, called the Bascule method during prone esophagectomy. The fundamental concept of this new method is to draw the proximal portion of the divided… CONTINUE READING
