Modern trends in oesophageal surgery

CG Bremner

Abstract


Changes in the practice of oesophageal surgery have paralleled the increased incidence of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD), the introduction of minimally invasive techniques, a better understanding of the pathophysiology of oesophageal disease, advances in instrumentation and the surge of molecular biological interests. The recent explosion of bariatric surgery in the USA has also opened new dimensions for investigation of the effects of bariatric procedures on oesophageal function.
