Severe caustic burns to the esophagus may necessitate esophagectomy with replacement, if stictures form which are not amenable to dilation. Traditionally, the operation is performed via open transabdominal and/or thoracic approaches. Here we describe our minimally invasive approach, combining laparoscopy and thoracoscopy for esophagectomy, stomach tubularization and a cervical esophagogastrotomy. We successfully performed the procedure in a 4-year-old boy. There were no intraoperative complications, and his initial esophagram showed good patency with no leaks. However, one week postoperatively he was noted to have a retained foreign body and a minor anastomotic leak, which was most likely caused by the foreign body. He underwent a neck re-exploration,removal of the foreign body, and repair of the anastomotic leak. His subsequent hospital course was uneventful. He tolerated feedings and was discharged home on an unrestricted diet. The minimally invasive approach to esophagectomy and esophageal replacement is feasible and is an excellent option in select patients.
