Videothoracoscopic management of middle esophageal diverticulum with secondary bronchoesophageal fistula: Report of a case
MetadataShow full item record
Middle esophageal diverticulum is rare, but can result in bronchoesophageal fistula. Previous reports have described open surgical techniques to treat esophageal diverticula, but few have evaluated the effectiveness of a videothoracoscopy approach. We report a case of middle esophageal diverticulum associated with bronchoesophageal fistula, managed successfully with videothoracoscopy. We also review the relevant literature.
