BACKGROUND: Diaphragmatic hernias following esophagectomy are mostly asymptomatic. However, they can also present with severe complications and be associated with high morbidity and mortality rates. The aim of this study was to assess the incidence, predictive factors and preferred treatment of symptomatic diaphragmatic hernias and to evaluate the role of prophylactic cruroplasty in patients following esophagectomy for carcinomas of the esophagus or gastro-esophageal junction. METHODS: A prospective database was used to retrospectively analyze consecutive patients who underwent esophagectomy between January 2005 and December 2015...

Bleeding of an aberrant right subclavian artery following transthoracic en bloc esophagectomy and intrathoracic gastric reconstruction is a rare but severe complication in esophageal surgery. Preoperative diagnosis can be achieved by computed tomography or magnetic resonance angiography (MRA). Various treatment options are available; thus, the treatment can be challenging and should be adjusted to the severity of the symptoms. Bleeding of an aberrant right subclavian artery can result from perioperative vascular injury or various postoperative complications...

BACKGROUND: Pylorotomy and pyloroplasty in thoracoabdominal esophagectomy are routinely performed in many high-volume centers to prevent delayed gastric emptying (DGE) due to truncal vagotomy. Currently, controversy remains regarding the need for these practices. The present study aimed to determine the value and role of pyloric drainage procedures in esophagectomy with gastric replacement. METHODS: A retrospective review of prospectively collected data was performed for all consecutive patients who underwent thoracoabdominal resection of the esophagus between January 2009 and December 2016 at the Katharinenhospital in Stuttgart, Germany...

Effective and adequate opioid use and prevention of postoperative complications are important for enhanced recovery after surgery. We examined the effects of postoperative opioid use and postoperative complications on overall survival and recurrence-free survival after esophageal cancer surgery. This retrospective cohort study analyzed the records of patients diagnosed with esophageal cancer who underwent the Ivor Lewis operation between January 2005 and December 2011. We collected data on total opioid use for 8 days postoperatively, as well as information on postoperative complications (Clavien-Dindo classification)...

BACKGROUND: Postoperative chylothorax in children is associated with an increased risk of vascular thrombosis, hypothesized to be from loss of antithrombin into chylous fluid resulting in a hypercoagulable state. In adults, an increased thrombotic risk with chylothorax has not been described. Adults undergoing Ivor-Lewis esophagogastrectomy have two strong thrombotic risk factors-active malignancy and postoperative state-allowing for relative homogeneity in baseline thrombotic risk; therefore, we studied the association of chylothorax with thrombosis in this population...

A 75-year-old male who underwent an Ivor Lewis esophagectomy due to a distal adenocarcinoma had a leak at the gastroplasty on the 5th day after surgery, which required two surgeries and a primary suture. He was transferred to our hospital due to a poor outcome and endoscopy revealed a 2.5cm gap perianastomotically on the gastroplasty wall, for which a stent was placed. Due to hemodynamic impairment, a thoracotomy procedure was performed, which revealed stent protrusion into the cavity. The patient underwent an esophagogastric anastomosis resection, cervical esophagostomy and gastrostomy...

BACKGROUND: Chronic smokers show differences in pain sensitivity compared to healthy non-smokers. Yet, no study to date has examined whether smoker status has an effect on postoperative pain. OBJECTIVE: We aim to examine a possible correlation between preoperative smoking and postoperative opioid dose based on the hypothesis that smokers would use higher doses of opioids to manage increased postoperative pain. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective observational cohort study...

Purpose: We report a very unique case of an esophageal metastasis from a pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) primary. Methods: After obtaining consent from the patient, all relevant records of the case were obtained and retrospectively reviewed. Results: At presentation, the patient was diagnosed with synchronous pancreatic and esophageal cancer. He received six months of neoadjuvant therapy including FOLFIRINOX (5-fluorouracil, leucovorin, irinotecan, and oxaliplatin) and stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) to the pancreatic tumor followed by a combined pancreaticoduodenectomy and Ivor Lewis esophagectomy...

BACKGROUND: Intercostal pleural drainage is standard practice after transthoracic esophagectomy but has some drawbacks. We hypothesized that a transhiatal pleural drain introduced through the subxyphoid port site incision at laparoscopy can be as effective as the intercostal drainage and may enhance patient recovery. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A proof of concept study was designed to assess a new method of pleural drainage in patients undergoing hybrid Ivor Lewis esophagectomy (laparoscopy and right thoracotomy)...
