Background: The incidence and characteristics of gastric cancer have been shown to vary widely across Western and Eastern countries. Our study had two aims: to evaluate long-term trends in gastric adenocarcinoma in Japan over a period of 70 years, and to anticipate the future of gastric cancer in Japan, through comparison with data from the United States. Methods: Japanese patient data for 19,306 incident cases of gastric adenocarcinoma from 1946 - 2014 were collected from the Gastric Cancer Database at the Cancer Institute Hospital, Tokyo, Japan (CIH-GCDB)...

BACKGROUND: "Lichenoid esophagitis" is a descriptive term for a lichenoid pattern of inflammation in the esophagus for which a precise histologic diagnosis cannot be established. The differential diagnosis includes lichen planus, a drug-related reaction, and viral infection. Lichenoid esophagitis causing death has not been reported previously. We describe a case, diagnosed by autopsy, of lichenoid esophagitis in which massive bleeding from generalized epithelial sloughing and a large longitudinal ulcer proved fatal...

Aorto-esophageal fistula (AEF) is a rare and lethal entity, and the difficulty of making diagnosis of AEF is well-known. As promising results in the short-term effectiveness of thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) promote its usage, the occurrence of AEF after TEVAR (post-TEVAR AEF) increases as one of the major complications. Therefore, we provide a review concerning the management strategy of post-TEVAR AEF. Although its representative symptom was reported as the triad of mid-thoracic pain and sentinel hematemesis followed by massive hematemesis, the symptom-free interval between sentinel hemorrhage and massive exsanguination is unpredictable...

AIM: To show outcomes of our series of patients that underwent a total gastrectomy with a robotic approach and highlight the technical details of a proposed solution for the reconstruction phase. METHODS: Data of gastrectomies performed from May 2014 to October 2016, were extracted and analyzed. Basic characteristics of patients, surgical and clinical outcomes were reported. The technique for reconstruction (Parisi Technique) consists on a loop of bowel shifted up antecolic to directly perform the esophago-enteric anastomosis followed by a second loop, measured up to 40 cm starting from the esojejunostomy, fixed to the biliary limb to create an enteroenteric anastomosis...

Infants and children with esophageal atresia commonly present with swallowing dysfunction or dysphagia. Dysphagia can lead to a range of significant consequences such as aspiration pneumonia, malnutrition, dehydration, and food impaction. To improve oral intake, the clinical diagnosis of dysphagia in patients with esophageal atresia should focus on both the pharynx and the esophagus. To characterize the complex interactions of bolus flow and motor function between mouth, pharynx, and esophagus, a detailed understanding of normal and abnormal deglutition is required through the use of adequate and objective assessment techniques...

Atrial-esophageal fistula (AOF) after ablation in atrial fibrillation has a fatal outcome. Fully documented in 2004, AOF has never completely disappeared despite technological evolvements. Survival depends on early recognition and treatment. Gastroscopy allows early detection of esophageal lesions. We summarize here AOF mechanisms, evoking symptoms and treatment ; contribution of gastroscopy in early detection ; and finally symptoms from vagal and phrenic nerve injuries. This information is useful for emergency doctors, gastroenterologists / endoscopists, and general practitioners...

BACKGROUND: Feeding jejunostomy has increasingly become a standard adjunctive procedure during major esophago-gastric resections. They provide nutritional support during the post-operative period as required. However, significant early complications have been reported, most notably small bowel necrosis. Literature reports have been restricted to case reports or series. This study aims to determine the frequency of this complication in a cohort of patients undergoing esophago-gastric resection, and identify any difference in the risk of this complication between patients undergoing esophagectomy and gastrectomy...

A 43-year old man presented with recurrent pneumonias, episodes of hemoptysis and an enlarging right lower lobe mass. A clear diagnosis was not previously established in spite of multiple radiological evaluations and biopsies. Meticulous review of his CT imaging showed that he had subcarinal calcification on his prior CT scans, which had decreased in size and now multiple new small areas of calcifications were seen in the right lower lobe lesion. An esophago-pulmonary fistula due to migration of mediastinal calcifications was suspected which was identified on careful review of the CT chest and confirmed by esophagogastroduodenoscopy...

The lower esophageal sphincter (LES) and crural diaphragm (CD) provide the closure mechanism at esophago-gastric junction (EGJ). We used CT imaging in combination with 3D EGJ pressure recordings to determine the functional morphology of the LES and CD and its relationship to the EGJ anatomy. A 3D-HRM catheter recorded the EGJ pressure in 10 healthy subjects. A 0.5 mm diameter metal ball (BB) was taped to the catheter, adjacent to transducer #1. The EGJ pressure was recorded under following conditions; 1) end-expiration (LES pressure) a) before swallow, b) after swallow, and 2) peak inspiration (CD contraction) c) tidal inspiration and d) forced inspiration...

Esophago-pleural fistula (EPF) is an uncommon condition, despite of an anatomical proximity of these structures. Causes of EPF include pneumonectomy for suppurative or tubercular disease of lung and carcinoma lung, malignancy of esophagus. Benign EPF is rare and may be due to trauma or infection. The most common infectious cause is tuberculosis. Spontaneous development of fistula between esophagus and pleura is rarely described in literature. We, hereby present a spontaneous case of such a rare entity in a middle-aged male...

Experiments were undertaken to mechanistically define expiratory-muscle contribution to effectiveness of cough while controlling glottic movement. We hypothesized that electrical abdominal-muscle stimulation in patients with respiratory-muscle weakness produces effective coughs only when glottic closure accompanies coughs. In ten spinal-cord-injury patients, esophago-gastric pressure and airflow were recorded during solicited-coughs, coughs augmented by abdominal-muscle stimulation, and passive open-glottis exhalations...

Neoadjuvant chemotherapy(NAC)is thought to be effective to improve the outcomes in patients with adenocarcinoma of the esophago-gastric junction(AEG). We encountered 3 patients who were confirmed as having a pathological complete response following gastrectomy after NAC. The first patient had Siewert type II and clinical Stage III AEG, the second patient had Siewert type I and clinical Stage III AEG, while the third had Siewert type II and clinical Stage II AEG. Two patients received NAC with 2 courses of S-1 plus cisplatin, while the third patient received 2 courses of docetaxel, S-1, and cisplatin...
