We present a video on contemporary flexible endoscopic management of acute esophageal perforations. The NOTES experience has contributed to the development of new flexible endoscopic technologies that have facilitated the transformation of the endoscope into a truly therapeutic surgical tool. The experience of moving transluminally into various body cavities has facilitated surgeons to be more comfortable in applying surgical principles with the flexible endoscope.
