BACKGROUND: Open esophagectomy (OE) is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Minimally invasive oesophagectomy (MIO) reduces complications in resectable esophageal cancer. The aim of this study is to explore the superiority of MIO in reducing complications and in-hospital mortality than OE. METHODS: MEDLINE, Embase, Science Citation Index, Wanfang, and Wiley Online Library were thoroughly searched. Odds ratio (OR)/weighted mean difference (WMD) with a 95% confidence interval (CI) was used to assess the strength of association...

BACKGROUND: Patterns of recurrence after surgery with postoperative chemoradiotherapy (S-CCRT) or surgery alone in patients with oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) may differ. This might influence the nature and timing of subsequent management strategies. METHODS: Patients with SCC who had undergone R0 resection were included. Propensity score matching was used to select matched groups. Survival and recurrence were compared by Kaplan-Meier analysis. Univariable and multivariable Cox regression analyses were used to identify prognostic factors for overall and disease-free survival...

BACKGROUND: Patients undergoing upper gastrointestinal surgery often eat poorly post-operatively, despite dietetic input. A pilot study was conducted to examine the benefit of a 6 week nutritional supplementation via a feeding jejunostomy on fatigue, quality of life and independent living. METHODS: A feeding jejunostomy was placed routinely at oesophagectomy or total gastrectomy for cancer. At discharge, patients were randomised to nutritional supplementation (600 kcal/day) via their feeding jejunostomies or no jejunal supplement...

BACKGROUND: Post-burn oesophageal stricture is a late complication, which may require surgical intervention. The aim of the study was to compare gastric and colonic conduits and to evaluate the safety, efficacy and complications of these techniques. METHODS: Retrospective analysis of all patients treated for burn-related oesophageal strictures between 1989 and 2013. Oesophagectomy was performed via laparotomy and right thoracotomy, and/or cervical incision. RESULTS: Forty-six patients, including 29 men, aged 17-67 years (mean: 41 years), had burn-related oesophageal strictures...

INTRODUCTION: The elucidation of the clinical impact of comorbidities is important to optimize the treatment and follow-up strategy in oesophageal cancer. We aimed to clarify the surgical and long-term outcomes following oesophagectomy in oesophageal cancer patients with comorbidity. METHODS: A total of 658 consecutive patients who underwent oesophagectomy for oesophageal cancer between 1985 and 2008 at our institution were enrolled. Based on the criteria of comorbidity as we defined it, we retrospectively reviewed and compared the surgical outcomes and survival between the comorbid (n = 251) and non-comorbid group (n = 407)...

PURPOSE: Physical, nutritional and quality-of-life compromises are known sequelae of oesophageal cancer (OC) treatment. Inflammation and oxidative stress may be relevant to adverse consequences. Multimodal rehabilitation involving exercise and diet prescription may attenuate some of the negative consequences and optimise survivorship, and this was assessed in this feasibility study in OC patients at least 1 year post-oesophagectomy. METHODS: The 12-week programme included supervised and home-based exercise, dietetic counselling to ensure energy balance and multidisciplinary education...

REVIEW
Jayan Mannath, Krish Ragunath
Incidence of oesophageal adenocarcinoma has increased exponentially in the West over the past few decades. Following detection of advanced cancers, 5-year survival rates remain bleak, making identification of early neoplasia, which has a better outcome, important. Detection of subtle oesophageal lesions during endoscopy can be challenging, and advanced imaging techniques might improve their detection. High-definition endoscopy has become a standard in most endoscopy centres, and this technology probably provides better delineation of mucosal features than standard-definition endoscopy...

OBJECTIVES: There is controversy on the proposed benefits of publishing mortality rates for individual surgeons. In some procedures, analysis at the level of an individual surgeon may lack statistical power. The aim was to determine the likelihood that variation in surgeon performance will be detected using published outcome data. DESIGN: A national analysis surgeon-level mortality rates to calculate the level of power for the reported mortality rate across multiple surgical procedures...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: In 1975, a modification of popular two-stage Ivor-Lewis oesophagectomy was published with synchronous resection in chest and abdomen. As data on this technique are rare and inconsistent, we aimed to investigate safety, feasibility, and outcome of this approach. METHODS: Outcome of 201 patients undergoing synchronous oesophagectomy from 2000 to 2013 was analysed retrospectively. Two groups (early: 2000-2006; late: 2007-2013) were analysed to allow comparison of outcome over time...

BACKGROUND: Liver metastasis is common in patients with oesophageal cancer. The effect of operative intervention for post-operative solitary liver metastasis from oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) has not previously been examined. This research was to compare the effect of surgery and non-surgical therapy in patients with post-operative solitary liver metastasis from ESCC. METHODS: We retrospectively analysed the clinical data of 69 consecutive patients with solitary hepatic metastasis who had undergone oesophagectomy for ESCC and were subsequently referred to the First Affiliated Hospital of Zhengzhou University from January 2005 to December 2013...

BACKGROUND: Following oesophagectomy, a major surgical procedure, it is known that patients suffer from severely reduced quality of life and have an unmet need for postoperative support. Still, there is a lack of research testing interventions aiming to enhance the patients' life situation after this surgical procedure. AIM: The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of a nurse led telephone supportive care programme on quality of life (QOL), received information and the number of healthcare contacts compared to conventional care following oesophageal resection for cancer...

PURPOSE: After oesophagectomy, anatomical changes and loss of function induce various symptoms that may affect quality of life (QoL) in oesophageal cancer patients. The purpose of this study was to identify the factors influencing QoL in Korean patients who have undergone oesophageal cancer surgery. METHOD: This was a cross-sectional study of a convenience sample consisting of 120 surgery patients with oesophageal cancer. We used the EORTC QLQ-C30 and EORTC QLQ-OES18 to measure participants' oesophageal cancer-related symptoms and QoL...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies have reported that patients undergoing oesophagectomy in high-volume hospitals experience lower mortality rates. However, there has been ongoing discussion regarding the validity of evidence for this association. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between hospital volume and risk-adjusted mortality following oesophagectomy in Japan, using a nationwide web-based database. METHODS: The study included patients registered in the database as having undergone oesophagectomy with reconstruction between 2011 and 2013...

OBJECTIVES: Benign gastro-oesophageal anastomotic strictures after oesophagectomy can occur in up to 42% of patients. Traditional management includes serial dilations. We report our initial experience with the use of a dual-anchor, lumen-apposing endoluminal stent for the management of recurrent anastomotic strictures after oesophagectomy. METHODS: Retrospective review of patients who underwent 'off label' placement of a dual-anchor stent for recurrent anastomotic strictures...

BACKGROUND: Outcomes of oesophago-gastric cancer are poor and highly variable between centres. It is important that complex multimodal treatments are applied optimally. Low case volumes at Australian centres mean that the analysis of crude outcomes is an inadequate assessment of overall quality of care. Detailed analysis across a range of quality domains offers the opportunity to measure performance. METHODS: We compared data from the UK National Oesophago-gastric Cancer Audit 2010 with the prospective Alfred Hospital oesophago-gastric cancer database...

OBJECTIVES: It has been suggested that laparoscopic Ivor Lewis (IL) oesophagectomy reduces postoperative morbidity and mortality rates. However, data related to the long-term outcomes of this hybrid minimally invasive procedure are scarce. METHODS: All of the patients who had an IL oesophagectomy for cancer were extracted from a prospective database. Patients were matched one to one according to the surgical approach (laparoscopy versus laparotomy) and on the basis of a propensity score including eight variables: age, gender, American Society of Anaesthesiologists score, forced expiratory volume in 1 s, surgery (first-line treatment, after neoadjuvant treatment and salvage surgery), histology, location and pathological stage...
