Metastasis from squamous cell carcinoma of the lung to the stomach is extremely rare. F-FDG PET/CT demonstrated intense F-FDG uptake in the lower lobe of the left lung, stomach, and mediastinal lymph node in a 61-year-old man. Lower lobe of the left lung resection, mediastinal lymphadenectomy, partial gastrectomy, and esophagogastric anastomosis was performed. Immunohistochemical studies revealed squamous cell lung carcinoma in the left lung and metastatic carcinoma of gastric and lymph nodes. The present case further demonstrated the value of F-FDG PET/CT in the staging of malignant disease...

AIM: To investigate the appropriate extent of lymphadenectomy for squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the esophagogastric junction (ECJ). METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the cases of 52 patients with SCC of the ECJ who underwent extended mediastinal lymphadenectomy. We assessed potential risk factors for lymph node metastasis (LNM) in the upper/middle mediastinum by conducting univariate and multivariate analyses, and a receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analysis was used to evaluate the predictive value...

BACKGROUND: The upper esophageal sphincter (UES) reflexively responds to bolus presence within the esophageal lumen, therefore UES metrics can vary in achalasia. METHODS: Within consecutive patients undergoing esophageal high-resolution manometry (HRM), 302 patients (58.2±1.0 year, 57% F) with esophageal outflow obstruction were identified, and compared to 16 asymptomatic controls (27.7±0.7 year, 56% F). Esophageal outflow obstruction was segregated into achalasia subtypes 1, 2, and 3, and esophagogastric junction outflow obstruction (EGJOO with intact peristalsis) using Chicago Classification v3...

BACKGROUND: Postprandial hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia (PHH) is an increasingly recognized complication of gastric bypass surgery in obese adults, distinct from the "dumping syndrome". CASE PRESENTATION: Upon birth, primary repair of esophageal atresia was performed, and at the age of 14 months definite esophageal reconstruction was performed. At the age of 3 years, recurrent brief episodes of symptomatic hypoglycemia started. At the age of 5.7 years the girl was admitted to our clinic and investigations indicated hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia...

BACKGROUND: Achalasia is a disease caused by neuromuscular dysfunction in the esophagogastric junction, with a relatively low incidence among children. Peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) is a new endoscopic procedure for the treatment of achalasia, however it is rarely applied in children. OBJECTIVES: We aim to study the feasibility, safety, and effectiveness of POEM as a treatment for pediatric achalasia. METHODS: A total of 21 pediatric patients (aged from 11 months to 18 years) diagnosed with achalasia and treated with POEM from October of 2014 to October of 2016 in our hospital were included in our study...

BACKGROUND: The optimal surgical approach for adenocarcinoma directly at the esophagogastric junction (AEG II) is still under debate. This study aims to evaluate the differences between right thoracoabdominal esophagectomy (TAE) (Ivor-Lewis operation) and transhiatal extended gastrectomy (THG) for AEG II. METHODS: From a prospective database, 242 patients with AEG II (TAE, n = 56; THG, n = 186) were included and analyzed according to characteristics and perioperative morbidity and mortality and overall survival (chi-square, Mann-Whitney U, log-rank, Cox regression)...

BACKGROUND: Based on two benchmark studies perioperative chemotherapy (CTx) has become standard treatment for locally advanced esophagogastric adenocarcinoma (EGA) in Europe. However, only half of the patients in both studies actually received postoperative CTx (aCTx). Thus, we evaluated the prognostic impact of preoperative CTx (nCTx) and aCTx combined versus nCTx alone. Furthermore, we aimed to identify subgroups potentially beneficial of aCTx and factors associated with its non-administration...

The best-defined primary esophageal motor disorder is achalasia. However, symptoms such as dysphagia, regurgitation and chest pain can be caused by other esophageal motility disorders. The Chicago classification introduced new manometric parameters and better defined esophageal motility disorders. Motility disorders beyond achalasia with the current classification are: esophagogastric junction outflow obstruction, major disorders of peristalsis (distal esophageal spasm, hypercontractile esophagus, absent contractility) and minor disorders of peristalsis (ineffective esophageal motility, fragmented peristalsis)...

OBJECTIVES: Gastroesophageal reflux is common in patients post-lung transplantation (LTx) and thus considered a risk factor for aspiration and consequently allograft rejection and the development of chronic allograft failure. However, evidence supporting this remains unclear and often contradictory. Our aim was to examine the role played by esophageal motility on gastroesophageal reflux exposure, along with its clearance and that of boluses swallowed, and the relationship to development of obstructive chronic lung allograft dysfunction (o-CLAD)...

The results reported in the literature in the context of an R1 situation for a resected gastric carcinoma are not uniform. An R1 situation worsens the prognosis for the long-term survival of patients. This is significant especially for low T stages and lymph node metastasis with 0-≤3 lymph node metastases. In higher tumor stages with extensive lymph node metastases, the survival difference between R0 and R1 resections is lower and frequently no longer significant. The frequency of R1 resection is approximately 5% (range 1...

Background and study aims Submucosal tunneling endoscopic resection with double opening (DO-STER) was developed by our group for the resection of submucosal tumors in the esophagus and gastric fundus near the cardia. This study aimed to provide a preliminary evaluation of feasibility and safety of DO-STER. Methods The key to DO-STER is the creation of a tunnel opening in the mucosa over the inferior border of the tumor. During resection, the tumor can be gradually pushed out of the submucosal tunnel through the opening, leaving enough space for operation within the tunnel...

BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS: Although sedation esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) is now widely used, previous research has reported that sedation during EGD exhibits a negative effect on esophagogastric junction (EGJ) exposure. Atropine might improve EGJ exposure, as noted in clinical practice. The aim of this study was to examine whether sedation had a negative effect on EGJ observation in the Chinese population, and whether atropine had some ability to act as an antidote to this unexpected secondary effect of sedation...

RATIONALE: Portal vein thrombosis is a complication after liver transplantation and cavernous transformation of the portal vein (CTPV) is a result of portal vein thrombosis, with symptoms of portal hypertension revealed by an enhanced CT scan. Meso-Rex bypass is an artificial shunt connecting the left portal vein to the superior mesenteric vein and is mainly used for idiopathic cavernomas. This technique is also used for post-transplant portal vein thrombosis in pediatric patients thereby bypassing obstructed sites of the extrahepatic portal vein...

Trastuzumab with chemotherapy improves clinical outcomes in patients with human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-positive esophagogastric adenocarcinoma (EGA). Despite the therapeutic benefit, responses are rarely complete and the majority of patients develop progression. This is the first report evaluating (89)Zr-trastuzumab in HER2-positive EGA in which we evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics, biodistribution, and dosimetry. Methods: Trastuzumab was conjugated with deferoxamine and radiolabeled with (89)Zr...

As an organ preserving option in the treatment of submucosal tumor found at the esophagogastric junction (EGJ), percutaneous endoscopic intragastric surgery (PEIGS) plays an important role, while it is not commonly performed and there have been very few reports on this unique operation. The current authors have been performing PEIGS since 1993 and have reported on its short- and long-term outcomes from one of the world largest series. Herein its confusing terminology is discussed and techniques of three different types of PEIGS (original PEIGS, single incision PEIGS, and needlescopic PEIGS) are precisely described...

We developed the laparoscopic and endoscopic cooperative surgery (LECS) technique, which combines endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) and laparoscopic gastric resection to resect gastric submucosal tumors (SMTs). Many researchers have reported LECS to be a feasible technique for gastric submucosal tumor resection regardless of tumor location, including the esophagogastric junction (EGJ). Recently, the Japanese National Health Insurance system approved LECS for insurance coverage, and it is now widely applied for gastric submucosal tumor resection...
