Standard treatment strategies have not yet been established for primary malignant melanoma of the esophagus (PMME), and far much less for recurrent disease. There are no reports of anti-programmed death-1 antibody treatment of recurrent PMME. A 60-year-old Japanese man was diagnosed with a primary malignant melanoma in the lower esophagus. The patient underwent mediastinoscope-assisted subtotal esophagectomy, and two nodal involvements were detected in the lymph nodes (LN)s along the left gastric artery. Paclitaxel and oral fluoropyrimidine were administered for 2 months as adjuvant treatment based on results of a histoculture drug response assay...

Dear Editor, delayed gastric emptying due to bilateral vagotomy after esophagectomy, has been associated with increased aspiration rates, prolonged hospital stay and impaired quality of life. A pyloric drainage procedure in an effort to reduce its incidence, most commonly a pyloroplasty, represented for years a standard part of distal esophagectomy. This trend has been reevaluated nowadays and the question that still remains open is whether we should further keep on draining pylorus during esophagectomy or not...

BACKGROUND: Robot-assisted minimally invasive thoraco-laparoscopic esophagectomy (RAMIE) was developed in 2003. RAMIE was shown to be safe and oncologically effective. The aim of this study was to assess the learning curve and the proctoring program for a newly introduced surgeon (surgeon 2). METHODS: The "learning curve" was defined as the number of operations that must be performed by a surgeon to achieve a steady level of performance. Measures of proficiency to describe the learning curve of the proctor and the newly introduced surgeon 2 included: operating time, blood loss and conversion rates and were analyzed using the cumulative sum (CUSUM) method...

The patient was a 66-year-old man who was diagnosed with a type 3 lesion in the esophago-gastric junction and a type 1 lesion in the upper esophagus. Both the lesions were diagnosed as adenocarcinoma. Chest and abdominal computed tomography examinations pointed out No. 106recL lymph node metastasis. He was diagnosed with Stage III esophago-gastric cancer( T2N3M0)and treated by a laparoscopic subtotal esophagectomy with 2-field lymph node dissection. The histological diagnosis was type 3 adenocarcinoma in the esophago-gastric junction with intramural metastasis and massive lymph node metastasis(No...

INTRODUCTION: Anastomotic leak and conduit necrosis are devastating complications following Ivor Lewis esophagectomy. Near infrared imaging (NIR) using IndoCyanine Green allows for real time tissue perfusion assessment which may reduce anastomotic leak during minimally invasive Ivor Lewis esophagectomy (MIE). METHODS: Forty consecutive MIE were performed by a single surgeon at a tertiary referral center. The first 20 were assessed for gastric conduit perfusion by clinical criteria (Group 1)...

BACKGROUND: Primary malignant melanoma of the esophagus (PMME) is a rare disease with a poor prognosis. There are few reports of early-stage cases in which tumor invasion reached the lamina propria or muscularis mucosae, as in the present case. A standard treatment for early-stage PMME has not yet been established. The present study aimed to summarize previous reports and to discuss the indications for surgical treatment of early-stage primary malignant melanoma of the esophagus. CASE PRESENTATION: A 70-year-old woman with PMME was referred to our hospital...

Pneumatosis intestinalis (PI) is a relatively rare disease. A 70-year-old man with stage II squamous cell carcinoma of the middle thoracic esophagus was administered cisplatin plus 5-fluorouracil (CF) therapy as neoadjuvant chemotherapy. On Day 14 of the first course of CF therapy, he complained of acute abdominal pain. Computed tomography (CT) revealed PI of the entire colon and a small air bubble in the mesentery. A colonoscopy revealed that there was no finding suggestive of ischemia. Because there was no sign of peritoneal irritation, conservative treatment was selected...

PURPOSE: Giant paraesophageal hernias (GPEH) are relatively uncommon and account for less than 5% of all primary hiatal hernias. Giant Secondary GPEH can be observed after surgery involving hiatal orifice opening, such as esophagectomy, antireflux surgery, and hiatal hernia repair. Surgical treatment is challenging, and there are still residual controversies regarding the laparoscopic approach, even though a reduced morbidity and mortality, as well as a shorter hospital stay have been demonstrated...

BACKGROUND: The rates of thoracoscopic esophagectomy performed in the prone and left lateral decubitus positions are similar in Japan. We retrospectively reviewed short- and long-term outcomes of thoracoscopic esophagectomy for esophageal cancer performed in the left lateral decubitus position. METHODS: Between 1996 and 2015, 654 patients with esophageal cancer underwent thoracoscopic esophagectomy in the left lateral decubitus position. Patients were divided into early (1996-2008) and late groups (2009-2015, with standardization of the procedure and formalized training), and their clinical outcomes reviewed...

Evidence suggests that structured training programs for laparoscopic procedures can ensure a safe standard of skill acquisition prior to independent practice. Although minimally invasive esophagectomy (MIO) is technically demanding, no consensus on requirements for training for the MIO procedure exists. The aim of this study is to determine essential steps required for a structured training program in MIO using the Delphi consensus methodology. Eighteen MIO experts from 13 European hospitals were asked to participate in this study...

Totally endoscopic two stage (laparoscopic and VATS) esophagectomy for carcinoma of the esophagus is a well-established procedure. There are currently many methods to perform the intrathoracic esophagogastric anastomosis by VATS. This article describes a totally hand sewn VATS intrathoracic esophagogastric anastomosis technique in a 64-year-old female with a T2N0M0 adenocarcinoma of the lower third of the esophagus.

BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive esophagectomy (MIE) is gaining rapid popularity as an alternative to conventional open esophagectomy. However, whether incorporating laparoscopy into MIE can further help the patients with esophageal cancer has rarely been studied. The aim of this study was to evaluate the short-term clinical efficacy of thoracoscopic-laparoscopic esophagectomy (TLE) compared with thoracoscopic esophagectomy (TE) in treating esophageal cancer. METHODS: From September 2014 to December 2016, a total of 131 patients with esophageal cancer who had consecutively undergone MIE were included in the analysis; of them, TLE was performed in 71 patients and TE in 60 patients...
