Minimally invasive esophagectomy is a feasible and safe alternative to open esophagectomy. The stomach is the preferred medium for gastrointestinal reconstruction. This patient is a 51-year-old male with a distal esophageal lesion classified as a T2 on echo-endoscopy. This video describes the technique of minimally invasive Ivor-Lewis esophagogastrectomy. The procedure starts by laparoscopy in order to evaluate and to confirm the absence of distant metastasis.
