BACKGROUND: Anastomotic leakage is one of the most severe complications following esophageal resection. Among other strategies, gastric ischemic preconditioning has been proposed to improve anastomotic integrity. The aim of this systematic review is to investigate whether gastric preconditioning has influence on peri- or postoperative outcomes after esophageal resection. METHODS: A systematic literature search was performed to identify studies comparing gastric preconditioning with non-preconditioned patients for any indication of esophageal resection...

This is a case report of a rare form of tuberculosis in a patient presenting with dysphagia. Patient was subjected to upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, which revealed an ulcerative growth in the distal esophagus. Histopathology revealed esophageal tuberculosis. Patient was managed conservatively with Anti-Tuberculosis Treatment (ATT). Follow up endoscopy after two months revealed resolution of the growth and patient was symptomatically better. In spite of the rare nature of the disease, it can be managed effectively with ATT to avoid complications (fistula, stricture, and esophageal perforation), which might warrant surgery...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is considered an effective treatment for early esophageal cancer and precancerous lesions. Esophageal stenosis is closely associated with quasi-circumferential ESD. We examined whether post-ESD esophageal stricture can be prevented by grafting an acellular dermal matrix (ADM) membrane. METHODS: Fourteen Bama miniature pigs were randomly divided into an ADM group (n=7) and a control group (n=7). Semi-circumferential ESD was performed at the distal esophagus in all animals, and in the ADM group, an ADM patch graft was placed at the resection site and secured innovatively with metal clips...

BACKGROUND: Proximal gastrectomy (PG) is widely performed in Japan as a function-preserving surgical approach. Since esophagogastrostomy (EG) was associated with increased reflux symptoms and anastomotic strictures, we have chosen double-tract reconstruction (DTR) as the standard reconstruction method since March 2013. In this study, we described a novel method of laparoscopic DTR using detachable ENDO-PSD and compared its 1-year outcome with EG performed formerly in our institution. METHODS: Patients who underwent laparoscopic PG between May 2005 and July 2014 were retrospectively divided into two groups based on the type of reconstruction and were subsequently analyzed (19 patients in the DTR group and 22 in the EG group)...

Esophageal stricture formation after extensive endoscopic resection remains a major limitation of endoscopic therapy for early esophageal neoplasia. This study assessed a recently developed self-assembling peptide (SAP) matrix as a wound dressing after endoscopic resection for the prevention of esophageal stricture. Ten pigs were randomly assigned to the SAP or the control group after undergoing a 5-cm-long circumferential endoscopic submucosal dissection of the lower esophagus. Esophageal diameter on endoscopy and esophagogram, weight variation, and histological measurements of fibrosis, granulation tissue, and neoepithelium were assessed in each animal...

Esophageal stricture occurs in 7-23% of patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease. However, the current treatments including stent therapy, balloon dilation, and bougienage involve limitations such as stent migration, formation of the new strictures, and snowplow effect. The purpose of the current study was to investigate the feasibility of structural expansion in tubular tissue ex vivo during temperature-monitored photothermal treatment with a diffusing applicator for esophageal stricture. Porcine liver was used as an ex vivo tissue sample for the current study...
