The laparoscopic approach to the Heller myotomy has become widely accepted. With the exception of rare situations, e.g. complications requiring conversion and complex redo surgery, laparoscopic myotomy, supplemented by the Dor fundoplication, is considered the standard technique. The general principles of the procedure are the same as that for the open technique. In this chapter, elements of the operation specific to the laparoscopic approach are presented.

Abstract

The laparoscopic approach to the Heller myotomy has become widely accepted. With the exception of rare situations, e.g. complications requiring conversion and complex redo surgery, laparoscopic myotomy, supplemented by the Dor fundoplication, is considered the standard technique. The general principles of the procedure are the same as that for the open technique. In this chapter, elements of the operation specific to the laparoscopic approach are presented.
