Topical steroids are the primary medical therapy for eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE). Current steroid formulations are used off-label and designed for airway delivery. It is known that the efficacy of topical steroids depends on drug-mucosal contact time, which is related to its formulation. The purpose of this study is to examine the effectiveness of fluticasone administered by means of an orally administered powder formulation. We conducted a retrospective analysis of patients diagnosed with EoE based on current guidelines and who were treated with orally administered fluticasone powder...

Achalasia is a primary esophageal motor disorder with a variety of causes. It is most common in Central and South America, where Chagas disease is endemic. In addition to the infectious etiology, achalasia can be idiopathic, autoimmune, or drug induced. It is an incurable, progressive condition that destroys the intramural nerve plexus, causing aperistalsis of the esophageal body and impaired relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter. The literature on the treatment of achalasia comparing pneumatic dilation (PD) and laparoscopic Heller's myotomy (LHM) shows conflicting results...

Esophagectomy is an extensive procedure with severe postoperative effects. It can be assumed that the greater the trauma, the longer the nutritional recovery. This retrospective observational single-center cohort study compared weight development after esophagectomy with open and minimally invasive techniques. Three groups were compared in this study, one representing the first 41 patients who underwent the minimally invasive McKeown esophagectomy (MIMK). The second group included the first 84 consecutive patients operated with the minimally invasive Ivor-Lewis esophagectomy (MIIL)...

The prognostic values of image-based tumor texture analysis based on computed tomography (CT) and of limiting the segmented tumor volume to metabolically active regions using fludeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) were studied in 25 patients with esophageal adenocarcinoma and 11 patients with squamous cell carcinoma. The aims of this study are to describe their CT-image-based texture characteristics before and after neoadjuvant therapy and to evaluate whether limiting the examined tumor volume to metabolically active regions detected with FDG-PET image data would further improve their value...

Infectious esophagitis is a leading cause of esophagitis worldwide. While esophageal infections have traditionally been associated with immunocompromised patients, these disorders are becoming increasingly recognized in immunocompetent individuals. The three most common etiologies of infectious esophagitis are Candida, herpes simplex virus, and cytomegalovirus. Human papilloma virus infection can also involve the esophagus in the form of ulcerative lesions and papillomas. Less common etiologies include various other fungal, bacterial, and viral organisms...

Flexible endoscopy has evolved to the point that it includes many endoluminal procedures that once required open or laparoscopic surgery, for instance, antireflux surgery, pyloromyotomy, mucosal and submucosal tumor resections, and even full-thickness resection. However, these procedures remain technically demanding due to flexible technology issues: difficult imaging, limited energy devices, lack of staplers, unsatisfactory suturing abilities, and so on. Transgastric laparoscopy or hybrid laparoscopy/flex endoscopy has been described for almost two decades as an alternative to a pure endoluminal approach, mainly for pancreatic pseudocyst drainage and full-thickness and mucosal resection of various lesions...

This study aims to examine the effect of preoperative inspiratory muscle training (IMT) on pre- and postoperative functional exercise performance in patients undergoing esophagectomy. A subcohort of patients recruited to the PREPARE randomized control trial were studied. Following evaluation of respiratory muscle function (spirometry, maximum inspiratory pressure (MIP), and inspiratory muscle endurance), postoperative mobilization (accelerometry) and postoperative physical functioning (6-minute walk test (6MWT)), participants scheduled for esophagectomy were randomly assigned to either 2 weeks of preoperative IMT or a control group...

With the emergence of eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) as a common cause of food impaction (FI) and a presumed increase in incidence of EoE in the population, the effect on the incidence of FI has not been well described. The aim of this study is to describe the incidence of FI and endoscopic findings in these patients and the association with EoE. A population-based retrospective chart review of the Rochester Epidemiology Project database was performed to identify all patients within Olmsted County that presented with FI from 1976 to 2012...

The survival advantage of radiotherapy (RT) for patients with metastatic esophagus cancer has not been adequately evaluated. This study aims to find out the role of RT for metastatic esophagus cancer and to find the different effect for RT to esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) and esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). This study included 5,970 metastatic esophagus cancer patients from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database, registered from January 2004 to December 2013. Propensity score (PS) analysis with 1:1 nearest neighbor matching method was used to ensure well-balanced characteristics of all comparison groups by histological types...

Totally minimally invasive Ivor-Lewis esophagectomy (Ivor Lewis TMIE) is a technically challenging procedure and is associated with a learning curve. Refinement of surgical technique is an important part of this learning curve. However, detailed descriptions of these refinements according to the idea, development, exploration, assessment, and long-term follow-up (IDEAL) framework are lacking and this study was undertaken to fill this knowledge gap. From 2010 until 2016, all consecutive patients (n = 164) were included from the first patient undergoing Ivor Lewis TMIE...

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...

Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) significantly extends survival in advanced esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC), but the short-term outcomes for cT4 ESCC remain controversial. Many NAC regimens have been previously reported, although no study has reported a regimen of irinotecan and nedaplatin for cT4 potential resectable ESCC. We evaluated the short-term outcomes of NAC with irinotecan and nedaplatin in a single cycle followed by esophagectomy on cT4 resectable ESCC. A total of 51 patients with cT4 potentially resectable ESCC were eligible for this study...
