This book provides a comprehensive, state-of-the art, evidence-based review of esophageal preservation and replacement and serves as a valuable resource for clinicians, surgeons and researchers with an interest in this field. The text reviews in detail the embryology, anatomy and physiology of the esophagus relevant to esophageal replacement. The indications, advantages, disadvantages, complications and long-term outcomes of all techniques available are also discussed. The latest advances in this field including the laparoscopic and thoracoscopic techniques are included with detailed descriptions and figures. Recent advances in tissue engineering techniques for manufacturing a neo esophagus are also discussed in detail. All chapters are written by experts in their fields and includes the most up to date evidence-based data available.
Esophageal Preservation and Replacement in Children is one of its kind and serves as a very useful resource for surgeons and researchers all over the world. It provides a comprehensive summary of the current status of esophageal preservation and replacement and all the recent advances in this field.
