Chassin’s Operative Strategies in Esophageal Surgery offers the reader a succinct review of surgical techniques for disorders of the esophagus. Spanning from well-established legacy procedures to the most up-to-date minimally invasive approaches for GERD, this brilliantly illustrated atlas exclusively presents the theoretical basis of the operations as well as the strategies required to steer clear of common pitfalls. Educed from Chassin’s Operative Strategies in General Surgery, this volume includes step-by-step descriptions of thirteen (13) operative procedures in esophageal surgery.
