Abstract

The case history of a patient who underwent laparoscopic staging of an esophageal carcinoma is presented. After neoadjuvant chemoradiation therapy a port site metastasis was found at esophagectomy. Possible etiologies, implications for the continued use of minimally invasive staging for esophageal carcinoma, and prevention of port site metastasis are discussed.
