Duplications of the alimentary tract are congenital lesions, cystic or tubular in shape, and composed of muscular walls with gastrointestinal mucosal lining. They are almost invariably adjacent to the alimentary tract, may communicate with the lumen,and may be multiple. These lesions can occur throughout the alimentary tract, but lesions of the esophagus, stomach, small bowel, and colon are more common. In this key lecture, Dr. Reinberg discusses the role of minimally invasive surgery for this pathology.
