Core Tip A 47-year-old woman was diagnosed with a benign schwannoma of length 60 mm in the thoracic esophagus. On endoscopy, a submucosal tunnel was created 40 mm proximal to the cranial edge of the tumor, and its only oral end was dissected from the mucosal and muscular layers. This was followed by the resection of the entire tumor by left-sided thoracoscopic procedure. Endoscopic closure was achieved by using clips. No postoperative complications were observed. Our experience demonstrated that large esophageal tumors can be safely excised with minimally invasive surgery by using a combination of thoracoscopy and endoscopy.
