Excerpt

The extent of lymphadenectomy in esophageal cancer is currently a point of controversy; however, recent evidence shows that overall survival is related to the number of lymph nodes resected during surgery. It is important to know the anatomical relationships of the left recurrent laryngeal nerve in order to resect the lymph nodes in this location without damaging the nerve, and hence decrease the associated morbidity.1 Therefore, standardization of the supracarinal approach during total mediastinal lymphadenectomy is necessary. In this video, we present different ways of approaching the left recurrent laryngeal nerve area during total mediastinal lymphadenectomy.2
