Notwithstanding the definite aetiopathogenetic path of certain diseases, the relationship between Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) and Barrett’s esophagus (BE), a condition that increases the risk for dysplasia and consequently adenocarcinoma of the distal esophagus and esophagogastric junction, remains uncertain. This paper reviews the current scientific literature with emphasis on the protective correlation between H. pylori infection and BE and demonstrates that a causal relationship has not been disproved with certainty...

BACKGROUND: Postoperative chemoradiation and perioperative chemotherapy using epirubicin/cisplatin/5-fluorouracil (ECF) represent two standards of care for resectable gastric cancer. In the TOPGEAR (Trial Of Preoperative therapy for Gastric and Esophagogastric junction AdenocaRcinoma) trial, we hypothesized that adding preoperative chemoradiation to perioperative ECF will improve survival; however, the safety and feasibility of preoperative chemoradiation have yet to be determined. METHODS: TOPGEAR is an international phase III trial in which patients with adenocarcinoma of the stomach were randomized to perioperative ECF alone or with preoperative chemoradiation...

BACKGROUND: Previous reports suggest that body composition parameters can be used to predict outcomes for patients with gastrointestinal (GI) cancers. However, evidence for an association with long-term survival is conflicting, with much of the data derived from patients with advanced disease. This study examined the effect of body composition on survival in primary operable GI cancer. METHODS: Patients with resectable adenocarcinoma of the GI tract (esophagus, stomach, colon, rectum) between 2006 and 2014 were identified from a prospective database...

BACKGROUND: Several studies have reported that the triangulating stapling method decreases the incidence of anastomotic stricture after esophagectomy, but no randomized, controlled trial has confirmed the efficacy of the triangulating stapling method for cervical esophagogastrostomy. We compared triangulating stapling and circular stapling for cervical esophagogastric anastomosis regarding the decrease in anastomotic stricture after esophagectomy for thoracic esophageal cancer. METHODS: Between August 2010 and April 2014, 100 patients enrolled in this randomized, controlled trial at the Wakayama Medical University Hospital were allocated randomly to either the circular stapling group (n = 49) or the triangulating stapling group (n = 51)...

PURPOSE: Nasogastric feeding tube is routinely positioned in intensive care units. The complications of misplacement are rare but very dangerous for the patients. The aim of this study is to estimate the diagnostic accuracy of this new technique, 4-point ultrasonography to confirm nasogastric tube placement in intensive care. METHODS: One hundred fourteen critical ill patients monitored in ICU were included. The intensivist provided in real time to perform the exam in four steps: sonography from either the right or left side of the patient's neck to visualize the esophagus, sonography of epigastrium to confirm the passage through the esophagogastric junction and the positioning in antrum, sonography of the fundus...

Esophageal and gastric varices are common complications of liver cirrhosis and are seen in 50% of patients with liver cirrhosis. The annual incidence rate of esophagogastric variceal bleeding is 5%-15%, and even if the recommended treatment is used, the 6-week mortality rate is still as high as 15%-20%. Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP) is a common complication of end-stage liver disease and has an incidence rate of 10%-30% in patients with severe liver damage. SBP refers to the bacterial infection of the peritoneum and/or ascites that occurs in the absence of any inflammation in adjacent tissues (e...

Esophagogastric cancers predominantly affect older adults; however, older patients are less likely to be recommended for both curative and palliative treatment. Older patients have unique challenges that need to be addressed during their oncologic care. Tools such as complete geriatric assessments may help to better identify fit older adults and stratify patients for aggressive treatment strategies. This review evaluates the current knowledge and the remaining challenges in optimally managing elderly patients with esophagogastric cancers...

Esophageal and gastric cancers are common malignancies, both in the United States and worldwide, that carry significant morbidity and mortality. Malnutrition is a common complication in patients with esophageal and gastric cancers and it portends a poor prognosis. For patients who undergo surgical therapy for these types of cancers, preoperative and postoperative nutritional optimization have been shown to improve outcomes. The support can be accomplished in different manners, including orally, enterally, or parentally...

Esophagogastric cancer is a worldwide health problem. The addition of the epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-directed antibody trastuzumab to chemotherapy increased the overall survival of patients with metastatic HER2-positive esophagogastric cancer. This article discusses the available data to support HER2 as validated biomarker and recently completed and ongoing clinical trials of HER2-directed agents in metastatic and localized disease. Also reviewed is the mechanisms of resistance for HER2-directed therapy and ongoing research strategies including new imaging techniques and studies with patient-derived xenografts...

Gastroesophageal cancer (GEC) remains a major cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide. Although the incidence of distal gastric adenocarcinoma (GC) is declining in the United States, proximal esophagogastric junction adenocarcinoma (EGJ) is increasing in incidence. GEC, including GC and EGJ, is treated uniformly in the metastatic setting. Overall survival in the metastatic setting remains poor. Molecular characterization of GEC has identified mutations and copy number variations, along with other oncogenes, biomarkers, and immuno-oncologic checkpoints that may serve as actionable therapeutic targets...

In East Asia, D2 dissection has been routine surgical procedure for curable advanced gastric cancer. More extended surgery than D2 is reserved for borderline resectable disease with extended nodal metastasis. The addition of radiation therapy to adjuvant chemotherapy failed to improve the outcome after D2 dissection. Because many patients are diagnosed in East Asia with early-stage disease, postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy is preferred, and S-1 monotherapy or capecitabine-oxaliplatin is standard care. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy may be preferred for stage III tumors; for borderline resectable tumors, preoperative chemotherapy is under study given the limitations of postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy in high-risk patients...

Esophagogastric cancer accounts for the second most common cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide. Significant efforts have been made to detect these malignancies at an earlier stage through the implementation of screening programs in high-risk individuals using advanced diagnostic techniques. Endoscopic management techniques, such as endoscopic mucosal resection and endoscopic submucosal dissection, have consistently demonstrated excellent outcomes in the management of these lesions. These techniques are associated with a lower risk of morbidity and mortality when compared with traditional surgical management...
