Although benign tumors of esophagus are rare (10%), leiomyoma of esophagus is the most common benign tumor and most commonly situated in the lower and middle-third of esophagus. Most of the tumors produce no symptoms and are found incidentally; however, when symptoms are present, dysphagia and pain predominate. While open surgical technique was the conventional mainstay of therapy for leiomyomas, combined esophagoscopy and video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery or laparoscopic transhiatal resection are being increasingly performed. We describe minimally invasive enucleation of esophageal leiomyoma with a fast-track approach with reduced postoperative pain and hospital stay.
