Cardiomyotomy for achalasia is one of the ideal procedures for the video endoscopic approach. Magnification of the operative field during laparoscopic surgery allows precise division of the muscle fibers with excellent results. The number of reports on cardiomyotomy performed with laparoscopic (and thoracoscopic) access is growing. They all show the same excellent results as for conventional (open) myotomy, with minimal morbidity, short hospital stay, and early return to routine activity.
