The use of opioid medications on both an acute and chronic basis is ubiquitous in the U.S. As opioid receptors densely populate the gastrointestinal tract, symptoms and side effects can be expected in these patients. In the esophagus, dysmotility may result manifesting with dysphagia and a syndrome indistinguishable from primary achalasia. In the stomach, a marked delay in gastric emptying may ensue with postprandial nausea and early satiety. Postoperatively, particularly with abdominal surgery, opioid induced ileus may ensue...

Synchronous gastric tumors, and, especially the presence of an adenocarcinoma and gastrointestinal stromal tumors, are less frequent. We present the case of a 75-year-old patient, with no gastrointestinal pathology in the medical history, who was admitted for marked asthenia, nausea, coffee grounds vomiting, inappetence, dizziness, weight loss and periodical epigastralgias. The clinical and imagistic examinations highlighted an ulcerative, infiltrative, bleeding tumor formation, present on the anterior side and subcardially on the small curvature...

BACKGROUND: Achalasia is a rare disease with a morbidity of 1 in 100,000, for which the exact mechanism of pathogenesis has not been clarified due to the small total number of patients. We herein report on our experience with two cases of familial achalasia in which the involvement of genetic inheritance was suspected. CASE PRESENTATION: These cases consist of a man in his thirties and his mother in her sixties. The son consulted the Department of Gastrointestinal Medicine at our institute with dysphagia, and an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy revealed a gastric submucosal tumor with a maximal diameter of approximately 50 mm...

BACKGROUND: Esophageal carcinomas are highly malignant tumors with a high frequency of lymph node and distant organ metastasis. Treatment for recurrent tumors is generally decided on an individual basis. Although multidisciplinary treatments involving chemotherapy, surgical resection, and radiation are performed, the prognosis remains poor. Here, we report a case of prolonged recurrence-free survival (38 months) after esophageal carcinoma surgery and subsequent laparoscopic adrenalectomy for right adrenal metastasis...

In endoscopic laryngo-pharyngeal surgery (ELPS), a rigid curved laryngo-pharyngoscope, which was invented by Dr. Sato et al., is necessary to obtain excellent surgical view of both hypopharynx and even the entrance of the esophagus. We have used this instrument for the examination and treatment of several diseases other than cancer located in the hypopharynx, such as difficult-to-find buried fish bones, retropharyngeal abscess, and congenital pyriform sinus fistula. In the result, we could acquire better view of hypopharynx and completed the intended procedure safely, especially for uncovering difficult-to-find fish bone buried in the mucosa...

In recent years, the treatment of esophagus cancer has been completely changed, thus competing the dogma of surgery as the cornerstone treatment. Multimodality treatments as radio-chemotherapy directly followed by surgery, or delayed surgery, significantly improve patient survival compared to surgery alone. Neoadjuvant radiochemotherapy is associated with a higher complete pathologic response rate and improved survival compared to chemotherapy alone. Immediate surgery after radio-chemotherapy is challenged for patients who present a complete clinical response, especially in case of squamous cell carcinoma...

The management of incidentally discovered small upper gastrointestinal (GI) tract submucosal tumors (SMT) remains debatable. In this review, we summarize the evolving experience with submucosal tunneling endoscopic resection (STER) of upper GI SMTs originating from the muscularis propria. From 16 original studies, we reviewed a total of 703 patients with 736 lesions. Of these, 436 were located in the esophagus, 146 in the esophagogastric junction (EGJ) and 154 in the stomach. The composite complete resection rate (CRR) for STER of upper GI tumors arising from the muscularis propria layer was 99...

BACKGROUND: Patients with resectable esophageal cancer (rEC) are managed with either concurrent chemoradiotherapy followed by surgery (CRSx) or concurrent chemoradiotherapy alone (cCR). To the authors' knowledge, there is insufficient evidence comparing the overall survival of patients treated with these 2 options. METHODS: The National Cancer Data Base was queried for rEC cases diagnosed from 2003 through 2011. Patients with previous cancers, cervical rEC, clinical stage T1N0 disease, or metastasis were excluded...

BACKGROUND: Total pharyngolaryngoesophagectomy (PLE) is used as a curative treatment for synchronous laryngopharyngeal and thoracic esophageal cancer or for multiple cancers in the cervical and thoracic esophagus. Gastric pull-up is commonly used after PLE, but postoperative complications are common. The present study evaluated these procedures in patients with esophageal cancer. METHODS: Fourteen patients (7 with synchronous pharyngeal and thoracic esophageal cancer, 4 with synchronous cervical and thoracic esophageal cancer, and 3 with cervicothoracic esophageal cancer) underwent reconstructive surgery after PLE involving gastric pull-up combined with free jejunal graft between 2004 and 2015...

INTRODUCTION: Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) has been the gold standard for treating cervical degenerative disc disease (cDDD). The use of anterior plates in ACDF poses an increased risk of complications such as screw or plate dislodgement, soft tissue injury, esophagus perforation, and dysphagia. The ROI-C™ implant system consists of a zero-profile interbody fusion cage with self-locking plates designed for stand-alone fusion without external plates or screws. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this report is to describe the ROI-C™ implant system with VerteBRIDGE™ anchor plates, including indications for use, surgical technique, preclinical testing, and clinical study results...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Stepwise radical endoscopic resection (SRER) has shown to be effective in eradicating Barrett's esophagus (BE) and its associated dysplasia. The aim of this study was to assess the long-term durability after successful SRER for early Barrett's neoplasia. METHODS: Patients who were treated with SRER for BE ≤5 cm with high-grade dysplasia (HGD) or early cancer (EC) and had reached complete eradication of intestinal metaplasia (CE-IM) and neoplasia (CE-neo) were included...

REVIEW
Shilpa Jain, Sadhna Dhingra
Esophageal cancer is a serious malignancy with high mortality. The two common distinctive pathologic subtypes of esophageal cancer are squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma. These differ with regards to etiology, ethnic distribution, pathogenesis, and location in the esophagus. The precursor lesions are also unique to each subtype. Squamous cell carcinoma is more common in East Asia, is linked to smoking and tobacco use, more commonly involves the middle esophagus, and the precursor lesion is squamous dysplasia...

RATIONALE: Primary malignant melanoma of the esophagus (PMME) is a rare disease with an extremely poor prognosis. In contrast, melanocytosis is a benign condition defined as melanocytic proliferation with melanin deposition. PMME is often accompanied by melanocytosis, but differentiating between them is difficult because of their similar appearance. PATIENT CONCERNS: Here, we reported 3 PMME cases, 2 with melanocytosis. DIAGNOSES: Magnifying endoscopy revealed characteristic non-uniform pigmented spots along deformed intrapapillary capillary loops (IPCLs) in PMME, while melanocytosis showed fine granule-like or linearly arranged spots and intact IPCLs...

Pulmonary artery sling (PAS) is a rare congenital condition in which the left pulmonary artery (LPA) arises from the right pulmonary artery, and then passes between the trachea and the esophagus to reach the left lung, thereby forming a sling around the airway. It is often associated with intrinsic tracheal stenosis due to complete cartilaginous rings. Therapeutic management nowadays consists of one-stage reimplantation of the LPA and tracheoplasty with cardiopulmonary bypass support. Here, we present a 7-week-old boy with PAS and long-segment tracheal stenosis (LSTS) who underwent surgical intervention consisting of reimplantation of the LPA and slide tracheoplasty...

BACKGROUND: Surgical resection of submucosal tumors (SMTs) in the abdominal esophagus is not standardized. Enucleation may be a minimally invasive option, whereas its oncological validity is not very clear. Moreover, how to treat the esophageal wall defect after enucleation and necessity of additional antireflux procedure are also undetermined. METHODS: In 13 patients with a SMT originating the abdominal esophagus laparoscopic enucleation was performed with preserving the integrity of submucosa...

OBJECTIVES: Approximately 1 % of all malignant solid tumours of the head and neck area are metastases from primary tumours beneath the clavicles. The aim of this study was to analyse the distribution of primary tumours since meta-analyses might have been biased due to the usually extraordinary character of case reports. MATERIALS AND METHODS: All patient files from 1970 to 2012 from the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery unit at a University Hospital were analysed regarding the existence of metastases to the head and neck area from distant primaries...

This is a case report of a rare form of tuberculosis in a patient presenting with dysphagia. Patient was subjected to upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, which revealed an ulcerative growth in the distal esophagus. Histopathology revealed esophageal tuberculosis. Patient was managed conservatively with Anti-Tuberculosis Treatment (ATT). Follow up endoscopy after two months revealed resolution of the growth and patient was symptomatically better. In spite of the rare nature of the disease, it can be managed effectively with ATT to avoid complications (fistula, stricture, and esophageal perforation), which might warrant surgery...

BACKGROUND: Esophageal cancer including squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and adenocarcinoma represents 4% of all cancers in the United States. Patients with esophageal cancer frequently present with locally advanced disease, and about 40% of patients have evidence of metastatic disease on presentation. Common sites of metastasis include liver, lung and bone. Here, we present a rare case of colonic metastasis from primary esophageal SCC. CASE PRESENTATION: A 60-year-old Caucasian male with a history of 20-pack-year cigarette smoking received surgery and adjuvant chemoradiotherapy for locally advanced SCC of larynx...

BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive esophagectomy (MIE) is increasingly used for the treatment of esophageal cancer. However, the ideal approach of MIE is not yet standardized. We explore the ideal approach of MIE according to the location of the tumor and compare the clinical outcomes between patients with cancer arising in the upper third of the esophagus and those with tumors involving the middle and lower third of the esophagus. METHODS: We included patients with esophageal carcinoma and had clear indications for MIE...
