This video demonstrates a combined thoracoscopic and laparoscopic esophagectomy for the treatment of a lower third esophageal cancer. The case is that of a 76-year-old man presenting with dysphagia and weight loss. The preoperative work-up demonstrated a T3 large esophageal tumor, poorly differentiated. Three cycles of neo-adjuvant chemotherapy were performed before surgery was scheduled.
