Resumo The use of cadavers in experimental esophageal surgery is reviewed. Items useful to cadaveric studies such as post-mortem changes, biosafety, ethics, and legislation are discussed. Tactics used in minimally invasive procedures (thoracoscopy and laparoscopy) are shown. Cadaveric use in studies concerning esophagectomy, gastroesophageal reflux disease, esophageal atresia, Boerhaave's syndrome, and Mallory-Weiss tears are discussed. It is concluded that human bodies represent a good but underused model for esophageal surgery.
