The paper outlines the experience with minimally invasive surgical technologies for esophageal injury in the presence of systemic connective tissue disease. The clinical example clearly demonstrates the importance of timely diagnosis of esophageal stricture in CREST syndrome and suggests that it is necessary to treat these difficult-to-treat patients at large multiprofile hospitals.
