Background: Management of postoperative chylothorax generally involves nutritional regimens as well as pharmacological and surgical therapies, but a clear consensus has yet to be reached. Methods: Retrospective review of 371 patients who underwent esophagectomy for esophageal cancer was performed. They were patients with squamous cell carcinoma or adenocarcinoma of the esophagus including Siewert type I/II tumor of the esophagogastric junction who underwent subtotal esophagectomy...

BACKGROUNDS AND AIM: Anastomotic leak (AL) following esophagectomy for esophageal cancer (EC) remains an important cause of prolonged hospitalization and impaired quality of life. Recently, indocyanine green (ICG) fluorescein imaging has been used to evaluate the gastric conduit blood supply during EC surgery. Although several factors have been reported to be associated with AL, no studies have evaluated the relationships between risk factors for AL, including ICG fluorescein imaging...

BACKGROUND: There are differences in the histological diagnostic criteria for early stage gastrointestinal carcinoma between Western and Japanese pathologists. Western histological criteria of carcinoma are "presence of stromal invasion of neoplastic cells", while Japanese criteria are "the degree of cytological and structural abnormality of neoplastic cells, regardless of stromal invasion". The aim of the present study is to clarify and review the present status of the Western and Japanese histological criteria of early stage esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and also to clarify their significance and accuracy...

BACKGROUND: Identifying clinical resectability of locally advanced esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is important, although inter-evaluator heterogeneity (IEH) could exist, especially in borderline resectable (BLR) cases. To investigate the extent of heterogeneity, we conducted clinical diagnostic imaging questionnaires. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Five cases with clinical T3 or T4 cases, which were treated with neo-adjuvant triplet chemotherapy followed by surgery, were selected as the model...

BACKGROUND: This study aimed to evaluate the influence of Helicobacter pylori infection and its eradication on the upper gastrointestinal symptoms of relatively healthy Japanese subjects. METHODS: A total of 3,005 subjects (male/female: 1,549/1,456) undergoing medical health checkups were enrolled in the present study, at five hospitals in Saga, Japan, from January to December 2013. They had no significant findings following upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. All subjects completed a questionnaire that addressed a frequency scale for symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease...

BACKGROUND: Postoperative delirium is common after extensive surgery, and is known to be associated with sleeping medications. In this study, we aimed to investigate the relationships between sleeping medications and postoperative delirium after pharyngolaryngectomy with esophagectomy. METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of 65 patients who underwent pharyngolaryngectomy with esophagectomy at Shizuoka Cancer Center Hospital between January 2012 and March 2016...

PURPOSE: To investigate the value of thoracoscopic surgery in radical esophagectomy with three-field lymphadenectomy. MATERIALS AND METHOD: The subjects were 329 consecutive patients who, without preoperative chemoradiotherapy, underwent R0 radical esophagectomy with three-field lymphadenectomy for thoracic squamous cell esophageal cancers during 1998-2013. Open thoracotomy was applied in 212 (O), and thoracoscopic surgery in 117 (V). Survivals according to TNM Stages and Efficacy index (EI) were analyzed...

Predicting invasion depth of superficial esophageal squamous cell carcinoma is crucial in determining the precise indication for endoscopic resection because the rate of lymph node metastasis increases in proportion to the invasion depth of the carcinoma. Previous studies have shown a close relationship between microvascular patterns observed by Narrow Band Imaging magnifying endoscopy and invasion depth of the superficial carcinoma. Thus, the Japan Esophageal Society (JES) developed a simplified magnifying endoscopic classification for estimating invasion depth of superficial esophageal squamous cell carcinomas...

BACKGROUND: Pharyngolaryngectomy with total esophagectomy (PLTE) is an effective surgical treatment for synchronous or metachronous hypopharyngeal or laryngeal cancer and thoracic esophageal cancer, although it is more invasive than esophagectomy and total pharyngolaryngectomy. The aim of this study was to identify risk factors for complications after PLTE. METHODS: From November 2002 to December 2014, a total of 8 patients underwent PLTE at the Shizuoka Cancer Center Hospital, Shizuoka, Japan...

BACKGROUND: We performed endoscopic ultrasound real-time tissue elastography to more accurately diagnose lymph node metastasis of esophageal cancer. The aim of this study was to evaluate the ability of EUS elastography to distinguish benign from malignant lymph nodes in esophageal cancer patients. METHODS: The present study had two steps. As the first step (study 1), we developed diagnostic criteria for metastatic lymph nodes using elastography and verified the validity of the criteria...

BACKGROUND: The extent of node dissection in esophageal cancer surgery is usually estimated by the number of resected nodes, irrespective of the area of dissection. The efficacy of lymph node dissection by area was evaluated according to the location of the primary tumor. METHODS: The study group comprised the 3827 patients who underwent R0 esophagectomy with three-field lymph node dissection for squamous cell carcinoma, registered in a nationwide registry in Japan...

We report here a case of esophageal perforation made by an endoscope while treating cicatrical stenosis that developed after wide circumferential dissection of superficial esophageal carcinoma. Perforation closure with a conventional endoclip was difficult as the perforation was large and the surrounding tissue was fragile as a result of steroids administration for stenosis prevention. To avoid surgical intervention, we employed the over-the-scope-clip system and successfully closed the perforation. The favorable outcome suggests the utility of the over-the-scope-clip system for closing perforations when conventional methods are ineffective...

A 64-year-old man underwent radical esophagectomy for cancer and simultaneous reconstruction using the gastric conduit through the posterior mediastinum. Two courses of adjuvant chemotherapy were performed. Twenty-eight months postoperatively, recurrence of the cancer was detected in the mediastinal lymph nodes, and he underwent concurrent chemoradiotherapy and boost chemotherapy. Endoscopy was then performed to investigate the cause of epigastralgia, and multiple ulcerations were found in the lesser curvature of the gastric conduit...

The patient was a 65-year-old man, who had undergone right nephrectomy for renal cancer in 2002. At that time, histopathological examination revealed clear cell carcinoma (pT3a, pN0, M0, and pStage III). Postoperatively, he received natural interferon alpha (6 million units 3 times a week) from November 2002 to February 2005, and showed no evidence of recurrence. However, he noticed dysphagia in March 2012. Endoscopy revealed a pedunculated polypoid tumor in the mid-esophagus and biopsies were taken showing a clear cell carcinoma...
