The goals of the study described here were to evaluate the feasibility and reproducibility of measuring spleen stiffness (SS) using point shear wave elastography in a series of cirrhotic patients and to investigate whether SS, liver stiffness (LS) and other non-invasive parameters are correlated with the presence of esophagogastric varices (EVs). Fifty-four cirrhotic patients with low-grade EVs or without EVs at esophago-gastro-duodenoscopy were enrolled. They underwent abdominal ultrasound and Doppler ultrasound of hepatic vessels simultaneously with p-SWE of the liver and spleen...

BACKGROUND:  Submucosal tunneling endoscopic resection (STER) has emerged as a feasible technique for resecting upper gastrointestinal (GI) tract submucosal tumors (SMTs) through natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery. STER reduces the risk of postoperative perforation and abdominal infections and promotes rapid wound healing. The aim of this meta-analysis was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of STER for small (≤ 3.5 cm) upper GI SMTs and explore the potential factors influencing STER's efficacy and complication rate...

We retrospectively examined a large cohort of esophageal carcinoma patients who received early enteral nutrition (EEN) to clarify the validity of EEN compared with total parenteral nutrition (TPN). Included were a total of 665 consecutive patients with histologically confirmed carcinoma of the esophagus or esophagogastric junction; and all patients underwent esophagectomy. The patients were divided into two groups: TPN (n = 262) and EEN (n = 403). The TPN group consisted of patients who only received intravenous nutrition support after operation...

Jackhammer (hypercontractile) esophagus presents with dysphagia and chest pain. Current treatments are limited. We describe a 60-year-old man who presented with dysphagia, chest pain and heartburn for a period of 1 year. His workup showed Barrett's esophagus on endoscopy and high-resolution manometry demonstrated jackhammer esophagus with esophagogastric junction outflow obstruction. The patient was treated with proton pump inhibitor and nifedipine but without resolution of his symptoms. He was followed up to assess the efficacy of treatment with deanxit (flupentixol + melitracen)...

BACKGROUND: Historical data indicate that surgical resection may benefit select patients with metastatic gastric and gastroesophageal junction cancer. However, randomized clinical trials are lacking. The current RENAISSANCE trial addresses the potential benefits of surgical intervention in gastric and gastroesophageal junction cancer with limited metastases. METHODS: This is a prospective, multicenter, randomized, investigator-initiated phase III trial. Previously untreated patients with limited metastatic stage (retroperitoneal lymph node metastases only or a maximum of one incurable organ site that is potentially resectable or locally controllable with or without retroperitoneal lymph nodes) receive 4 cycles of FLOT chemotherapy alone or with trastuzumab if Her2+...

Portal vein tumor thrombosis (PVTT) with advanced gastric cancer is very rare; when it occurs, it exhibits aggressive growth and carries a poor prognosis. In addition, definitive treatment has not been established due to insufficient data. Herein, we report a case of PVTT associated with an adenocarcinoma of the esophagogastric junction that was successfully controlled by means of a palliative total gastrectomy without surgical resection of the PVTT and administration of palliative continuous doxifluridine.

Postoperative chylothorax after surgery for esophageal cancer is a rare but serious complication. Treatment initially consists of conservative therapy and, if it fails to provide improvement, it is important to perform surgical treatment without delay. We report on a recent case of intractable chylothorax. This report describes a 72-year-old man with Stage III esophageal squamous cell carcinoma. Subtotal esophagectomy, through a right thoracoabdominal approach with two-field lymphadenectomy, and cervical esophagogastric anastomosis via the retrosternal route, were performed...

REVIEW
Moo In Park
Rumination syndrome is one of the functional gastroduodenal disorders. Effortless and repetitive regurgitation of recently ingested food from the stomach to the oral cavity followed by rechewing and reswallowing or spitting are the characteristic clinical features. This disorder is believed to be uncommon, but many patients with this disorder are overlooked by their physicians. Rumination might be caused by a reversal of the gastric contents through the esophagogastric junction, which is initiated by an increase in intragastric pressure...

BACKGROUND: Because of the poor prognosis of proximal gastric cancers, there is debate as to whether the conventional indications for endoscopic resection can be used. METHODS: Among subjects who underwent surgery for esophagogastric junction or gastric cardia cancer, 256 patients with T1 type II/III of the Siewert classification were included in this study. The association of lymph node metastasis (LNM) with each variable was analyzed using logistic regression models...

Objectives Dysphagia is common in total laryngectomees, with some symptoms suggesting esophageal dysmotility. Tracheoesophageal (TE) phonation requires effective esophagopharyngeal air passage. Hence, esophageal dysmotility may affect deglutition or TE phonation. This study aimed to determine (1) the characteristics of esophageal dysmotility in laryngectomees, (2) whether clinical history is sensitive in detecting esophageal dysmotility, and (3) the relationship between esophageal dysmotility and TE prosthesis dysfunction...

AJCC Esophageal Cancer Staging System, 8(th) edition will be implemented on January 1, 2018. The N staging in 8(th) edition of staging system remains following 7(th) edition based on the number of metastatic nodes, except the limited revision of the regional lymph node map. N staging revision was reviewed from the simple definition of negative (N0) and positive (N1) lymph node(s) to the positive node number based proposal (7(th) edition). The 7(th) edition staging system, especially the N staging, were proved with more advantages on distinguishing disease progression and predicting prognosis of the esophageal cancer...

BACKGROUND: Experience of peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) for treatment of achalasia in pediatric population is limited with varying techniques in different centers. The accurate extent of submucosal tunneling into the gastric cardia and the adequacy of myotomy are the important determining factors to success of POEM. A majority of studies in pediatric population have described using submucosal dye injection for assessing the adequacy of myotomy, however, this is a rather crude and inaccurate method...
