Surgery for esophageal carcinoma is known to be associated with high morbidity. Recent studies have reported a correlation of nutritional and inflammatory parameters with postoperative course. This study aims to clarify the risk factors for operative morbidity after resection of esophageal carcinoma. Consecutive patients who underwent esophagectomy for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma at our institute were included (n = 102; 89 males and 13 females; mean age: 67.3 years). Clinicopathological characteristics, presence or absence of sarcopenia, and modified Glasgow prognostic score were assessed, and their correlation with postoperative complications was investigated using univariate and multivariate analyses...

Social media provides a useful platform for informal discussions about healthcare. Acceptability is key to the uptake of diagnostic devices and this can be difficult to gauge from questionnaires and qualitative studies. The aim of this study is to investigate whether Facebook could be used to gauge public perception toward uptake of a new diagnostic test for Barrett's esophagus called the Cytosponge. We retrospectively reviewed Facebook comments relating to a video on the Cytosponge. We categorized comments into: (1) Positive, (2) Negative, (3) Unknown and (4) Questions...

Positive proximal resection margins are strongly associated with anastomotic recurrence in esophageal cancer. However, the prognostic significance of dysplastic proximal resection margins remains unclear. The aim of this study is to investigate whether the dysplastic proximal resection margin can predict anastomotic recurrence and overall survival in patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma. Between 2000 and 2014, patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma who received a nonpalliative resection and survived the perioperative period were included...

A reduced forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) is a well-recognized risk factor for complications after esophagectomy. Lung diffusing capacity for carbon monoxide (DLCO) is not routinely integrated in the risk assessment of esophagectomy. The aim of this study is to evaluate the association of preoperative pulmonary function tests with major postoperative complications after esophagectomy for cancer. In order to achieve this aim, 459 patients with newly diagnosed esophageal cancer who underwent elective transthoracic (n = 352) or transhiatal (n = 107) surgical resection of the esophagus with cervical anastomosis between 2003 and 2015 were analyzed...

Studies of the geographic distribution of esophageal cancer in the United States have been limited. We aimed to examine geographic clustering of esophageal cancer in the United States and assess whether that clustering is explained by the distribution of known risk factors for esophageal cancer. We conducted cluster analyses derived from county mortality rates of esophageal cancer, using publicly available datasets. State incidence rates of esophageal adenocarcinoma were from the National Program of Cancer Registries, and county esophageal-cancer mortality rates were from the Vital Statistics Cooperative Program...

The efficacy of early enteral nutrition after esophageal cancer surgery has been reported. However, the choice of formula and management of diarrhea are important to achieve the goal of enhanced recovery after surgery. The aim of this study is to assess the frequency of diarrhea/completion rate of enteral nutrition regimen as primary endpoints and the postoperative nutritional status/body composition analysis/operative morbidity as secondary endpoints was compared between the two nutrition groups. Among the 122 patients who underwent esophagectomy for esophageal cancer between December 2015 and September 2017, 67 patients who met the eligibility criteria were randomly assigned to receive enteral nutrition with either HINE E-GEL® (HINE group; n = 33) or MEIN® (MEIN group; n = 34)...

The ability to further stratify patients with esophageal carcinoma (EC) in the same stage into high-risk patients by the presence of lymphovascular invasion (LVI) may permit refinement of multi-modality therapy. However, the role of LVI in the prognosis of EC is not definite. A meta-analysis was conducted to investigate the relationship between LVI and EC prognosis. We searched PubMed, Embase, Web of Science, and Cochrane Library databases for studies on the association between LVI and prognosis of EC. Only studies with patient survival data related to LVI were included...

Limited data exist regarding patient-reported outcomes and quality of life (QOL) experienced by patients with Barrett's esophagus (BE) referred for endoscopic eradication therapy (EET). Specifically, the impact of grade of dysplasia has not been explored. The purpose of this study is to measure patient-reported symptoms and QOL and identify factors associated with poor QOL in BE patients referred for EET. This was a prospective multicenter study conducted from January 2015 to October 2017, which included patients with BE referred for EET...

The columnar-lined mucosa at the gastroesophageal junction may contain an inflammatory infiltrate, commonly referred to as carditis (or cardia gastritis). The etiology of carditis is not entirely clear since published data are conflicting. Some authors believe it to be secondary to gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and others to Helicobacter pylori gastritis. This prospective study aims at clarifying the relationship between carditis and the histological, clinical, and endoscopic findings of GERD, in a large cohort of individuals negative for H...

Esophageal cancer patients and carers report significant levels of psychological distress. Despite this, only a small number of patients and carers engage with existing psychological services. This study aims to explore the perception of esophageal cancer patients, carers, and healthcare professionals (HCPs) of psychological distress and current provision of support, the need for and format of tailored support and barriers to patient/carer engagement. Semistructured interviews were undertaken with n = 14 esophageal cancer patients, carers, and HCPs...

Acid exposure time commonly varies from day-to-day in prolonged wireless pH monitoring. Thus, diagnosis based on the number of days with abnormal acid burden may be misleading or inconclusive. We hypothesize that assessing longitudinal patterns of acid exposure may be diagnostically useful. Therefore, this study aims to describe acid exposure trajectories and evaluate agreement between identified trajectory patterns and conventional grouping. In this retrospective cohort study, we assessed patients with nonresponse to proton pump inhibitor therapy who underwent wireless pH monitoring (≥72 h) off therapy between August 2010 and September 2016...

Laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) is a clinical entity diagnosed by history laryngoscopic findings that has a variable response to empiric proton-pump inhibitor (PPI) therapy. While the reflux finding score (RFS), an endoscopic scoring scheme, has been advanced as a measure of LPR, it has not been externally validated against symptom severity in practice. Extralaryngeal pharyngeal endoscopic findings may have diagnostic utility but remain underexplored. This study assesses the correlation between extralaryngeal findings and (1) 24-hour oropharyngeal pH & (2) PPI response in patients with suspected LPR...

Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) is administered to many patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) prior to surgery, but it is also true that some of these patients demonstrated no response to the therapy following surgery. In addition, the prognosis of advanced case such as ESCC patients with lymph node metastasis has remained relatively low. Programmed death ligand-1 (PD-L1) in conjunction with tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) has been studied as a potential mechanism of "immune escape" in several human malignancies...

Dysphagia is a common symptom of esophageal cancer (EC). Esophagectomy should relieve the presenting dysphagia as the mechanical obstruction caused by the tumor is removed. However, the new onset oropharyngeal dysphagia develops after esophagectomy and the deficit may persist increasing the risk of aspiration pneumonia and mortality as well as adversely affecting quality of life (QOL). This study investigates the persistent swallowing deficits in long-term postesophagectomy patients and explores the factors associated with dysphagia severity, penetration, and aspiration...

Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) in the young patients is comparatively rare and has not been well studied. We analyzed the clinical and survival data of 127 ESCC patients <40 years at a single high-volume center and compared with those of 4109 ESCC patients ≥40 years who underwent surgery within the same period in this study. The average age was 36.5 ± 0.2 years for the young patient group, with the youngest aged 26 years. Young patients had a higher rate of family history, longer tumors, and a more advanced pT category than their older counterparts...

Dysphagia is the most significant symptom in patients with esophageal cancer. There are different therapeutic interventions designed to relieve dysphagia, but few studies have addressed the effects of neoadjuvant therapy. The aim of this study is to compare the effects on dysphagia of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (nCT) versus neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (nCRT) and further to study the association between dysphagia response and histological response. Patient reported swallowing function was a secondary endpoint in the NeoRes trial, in which patients were randomized between neoadjuvant chemotherapy or neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy...

Trimodality therapy is the standard of care for locally advanced resectable esophageal cancer (EC) but carries morbidity and mortality risks; thus, therapy at high-volume facilities (HVFs) may offer advantages. This investigation studied postoperative outcomes and overall survival (OS) in EC patients receiving trimodality therapy at HVFs versus lower-volume facilities (LVFs). The National Cancer Data Base was queried for patients with locally advanced EC receiving trimodality therapy. HVFs referred to the 90th percentile of case volume...

The results of diffusion-weighted MR imaging (DW-MRI) in predicting early response to chemoradiotherapy in patients with esophageal cancer varied in different studies. We performed this meta-analysis to evaluate the predictive values of DW-MRI and compare the diagnostic efficacy of different apparent diffusion coefficients (ADCs). A comprehensive literature search was performed to identify relevant articles published before November 2017. The quality of study was assessed using Quality Assessment of Diagnostic Accuracy Studies-2...
