P>Even though the history of this condition extends for almost 100 years, the short esophagus (SE) is still one of the most controversial topics in esophageal surgery with its existence still denied by some distinguished surgeons. We reviewed the evolution behind the diagnosis and treatment of the SE and the persons who wrote its history, from the first descriptions by radiologists, endoscopists, and surgeons to modern treatment.
