The esophageal wall.

PMID:  21477779     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
The esophagus spans three body cavities and has no mesentery, continually borrowing or sharing vessels, lymphatics, and nerves with associated organs. However, constant along this path is an intricate mural structure. An understanding of the esophageal wall, its blood supply, lymphatic drainage, and innervation is essential for successful esophageal surgery.
