Open trans-thoracic surgery represents the traditional approach for the treatment of symptomatic esophageal diverticula. However, it should be noted that minimally invasive techniques, including the laparoscopic trans-hiatal approach has been reported with success. We present the case of a patient suffering from dysphagia and regurgitation due to an esophageal diverticulum, successfully treated through a laparoscopic approach.
