abstract
Herein, we describe a case of a 41-year-old woman with two giant leiomyomas located in the lower thoracic oesophagus and gastric cardia that were treated by minimally invasive thoracoscopic and laparoscopic surgery. We first resected the gastric cardia and laparoscopically prepared a gastric tube, and then we resected the lower thoracic oesophagus and intrathoracically anastomosed the oesophagus and gastric tube using thoracoscopic surgery with the patient in the prone position. Two concurrent giant leiomyomas of the oesophagus and stomach are rare, and the choice of surgical procedure to address the tumour from the mediastinum into the abdominal cavity was particularly challenging. We selected a minimally invasive thoracoscopic approach with the patient in the prone position. This strategy seems effective for resecting these giant tumours in the lower thoracic oesophagus and gastric cardia.
