Since it has high morbimortality - inconvenient for benign disease -, in recent years an alternative has been introduced: the esophageal mucosal resection.AimTo compare early and late results of the two techniques evaluating the operative time, length of ICU stay; postoperative hospitalization; total hospitalization; intra- and postoperative complication rates; mortality; and long-ter… Show more

In Brazil, resection of the esophageal mucosa is preferentially performed for the treatment of advanced megaesophagus, in which a muscular tube is preserved through which the stomach is transposed to the cervical region [23] .…”
