ESOPHAGUS > Laparoscopic Resection of Epiphrenic Esophageal Diverticulectomy

Patient and Port position: Patient placed in modified Lloyd Davies position
Pneumoperitoneum created by veress needle through 10 mm Supraumbilical skin incision which later on converted into 10mm camera port.  5mm epigastric, 5mm RUQ and 12mm LUQ ports, 5 mm left anterior axillary line port.

STEPS :
Initial step is to visualize all quadrants of peritoneal cavity, liver surfaces, esophageal hiatus.
Left & right crus dissected. Short gastric vessels divided. Lower 7cm of esophagus mobilized and epiphrenic diverticulum identified. Diverticulum dissected and was divided by multiple firing of endo GIA staplers. Leak test done esophageal myotomy done which extend 5cm above and 2cm distal to GE junction over anterior stomach wall. Crural approximation done by interrupted sutures. Dor‘s fundoplication done by placing fundus over esophageal hiatus & fixed with both crus.
