We have used the conventional esophagectomy technique for esophageal cancer for years. We aimed to present the first seven cases in which we applied the minimally invasive esophagectomy technique in our clinic, which is widely used in recent years, in the light of the literature. Materials and Methods: Seven patients with early stage diagnosis of esophageal SCC who admitted to our clinic between December 2013 and April 2014 were included in the study. Three-stage surgery was performed on the patients. The thoracic esophagus was completely freed using the right thoracoscopic 4 trocar method. 4 ports were inserted into the abdomen and the stomach was made into a tube with endo GIA laparoscopically. The proximal esophagus was found with a left cervical incision and the specimen was pulled up. Esophagogastrostomy was performed in a single layer anastomosis. Results: The mean age of the patients was 58.57 ± 7.1 (53-69) and 5 of the patients were female and 2 were male. In 5 patients, the operation was performed with a thoracoscopic-laparoscopic approach and could be completed with a cervical anastomosis. Abdominal laparotomy was performed in 1 patient, and mini laparotomy was performed in 1 patient. Chylothorax complication, which we rarely encounter in open surgery, developed in 2 patients. One of these patients died. Conclusion: Minimally invasive techniques are increasingly accepted in esophageal surgery as in other fields. Even though minimally invasive esophagectomy is technically no more difficult than open surgery, which can be applied in centers with high patient potential after the basic training and learning period, we believe that the experience of the procedure and the timely and correct approach to possible complications significantly affect the success rate of the technique.
