This video describes an esophagectomy performed laparoscopically and thoracoscopically in a 53-year-old male patient presenting with an epidermoid esophageal carcinoma. The patient had previously undergone neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy with poor results. Restoration of digestive continuity was achieved through an intrathoracic esophagogastric anastomosis once the stomach has been tubulized.
