FOREWORD

 

The idea of an educational course on surgery for benign diseases of the esophagus originates from a recent survey promoted by ESDE (European Society for Diseases of the Esophagus): 86% of European surgeons strongly support centralization of this surgery. Centralization is legitimated by the appropriate, documented competence of physicians involved in the project and by excellence of short- and long-term results. This course is aimed to provide for surgeons the elements useful to offer patients appropriate indications and outcomes; it will be held on-line, articulated in five webinars: 1) the Heller myotomy for therapy of esophageal achalasia, 2) the Heller myotomy + fundoplication, 3) surgical therapy for GERD, 4) surgical therapy for non-axial hiatus hernias and short esophagus, 5) surgical therapy for esophageal diverticula. Clinical, pathophysiological, diagnostic fundamentals of diseases, indications for surgical therapy, will be treated with the participation of gastroenterologists. Surgeons who have achieved optimal long-term outcomes will offer their experience with particular focus on surgical physiology, technical principles and details of each operation. A consensus/recommendations document on the “how to do it” of the surgical techniques to adopt for the cure of benign esophageal diseases will be pursued through a “Delphi” process activated on-line after the end of the course, which will be realized with the participation of the Faculty and of registered participants.
