    Benign gastric tumors in a prepyloric location or within 3 cm adjacent of the gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) are often challenging to resect using minimally invasive surgical techniques. The aim of this study was to examine the outcomes of patients who underwent minimally invasive enucleation...

    Laparoscopic resection of gastric submucosal tumors has been described, but the role of laparoscopy for tumors within the esophagus or near the gastroesophageal junction is not clearly defined. The aim of this study was to examine the outcomes of laparoscopic or thoracoscopic enucleation or...

    Esophageal leiomyoma is a relatively rare tumor of esophagus but it is the most common benign neoplasm of the esophagus. Small esophageal leiomyoma can be observed but larger ones and those producing symptoms should be excised. As observed for other esophageal tumors, dysphagia is its main...

    Background: Leiomyoma is the most common benign esophageal tumor that originates in the muscular layer, with the most common site located in the distal third of the esophagus. Its growth causes symptoms due to partial obstruction of the esophageal lumen, leading to the diagnosis and subsequent...

    Background: Surgical enucleation of submucosal tumors (SMTs) of the esophagus (mostly leiomyomas) is indicated when either the tumors are symptomatic or their biological behavior is unclear. The classic approach is a thoracotomy, but tumor enucleation can now also be performed via thoracoscopy...

    Background: Leiomyoma accounts for 70% of all benign tumors of the esophagus. Open enucleation via thoracotomy has long been the standard procedure, but thoracoscopic and laparoscopic approaches have recently emerged as interesting alternatives. To date, only case reports or very...

    Background: Leiomyomas of esophagus, although rare, are the most frequent benign tumors of esophagus. Aim of this study is the presentation of 7 patients with esophageal leiomyomas who underwent surgical treatment during a 9-year period. Methods: Epidemiological data (sex, age), the presenting...

    Introduction: Esophageal leiomyomas are the most common benign tumors of the esophagus. Surgical enucleation is warranted for symptomatic patients. Thoracoscopic enucleation is the preferable approach for being less invasive by avoiding the discomfort and complications associated to larger...
