We report the case of a 63 year-old male with an atrioesophageal fistula following ablation who presented with neurologic symptoms and underwent emergent repair. He subsequently sustained a leak from the esophageal repair requiring emergent esophagectomy with end-esophagostomy. After several months, the patient underwent re-establishment of gastrointestinal continuity via retrosternal gastric conduit reconstruction.

In this study, we evaluated the prognostic value of TIM-3 expression and its relationship with programmed cell death 1 (PD-1) and CD8+ tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) in patients with surgically resected ESCC.MethodsExpression levels of TIM-3, PD-1 and CD8+ TILs in ESCC were determined by immunohistochemistry. The association between clinicopathological features or clinical outcomes and TIM-3 expression was analyzed.Results183 patients with ESCC who had undergone esophagectomy without implementation of neoadjuvant therapy at the Second Affiliated Hospital of Soochow University from January 2009 to December 2014 were ...

Authors: Lai G, Guo N, Jiang Y, Lai J, Li Y, Lai R Abstract OBJECTIVE: To assess whether the duration of one-lung ventilation (OLV) affects postoperative pulmonary complications after McKeown esophagectomy for esophageal cancer. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of data stored in a database for esophageal cancer was carried out to identify predictors of postoperative pulmonary complications in patients undergoing McKeown esophagectomy at Sun Yat-sen University Cancer Center between 2010 and 2012. RESULTS: Patients in the OLV ⩾150 minutes group had a higher incidence of postoperative pulmonary complication...

This study aimed to evaluate the individual and combined value of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography with integrated computed tomography (18F-FDG PET/CT) and diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) during and after nCRT to predict pathologic response in esophageal cancer patients.

AbstractEnhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocols vs standard care pathways after esophagectomy for malignancy have gained wide popularity among surgeons. However, the current literature is still lacking level-I evidence to show a clear superiority of one approach. The present study is a detailed systematic review and meta-analysis of the published trials. A systematic review of literature databases was conducted for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and non-randomized, prospective, comparative studies between January 1990 and September 2019, comparing ERAS pathway group with standard care for esophageal resection...

ConclusionsThese results compare favorably to those reported by ECCG. MIE can be the standard approach for surgical management of esophageal cancer. Introduction of the approach in each surgeon’s practice should be benchmarked to international standards.

Twelve patients who had undergone esophageal reconstruction because of cancer and in whom conventional percutaneous radiologic or endoscopic gastrostomy was considered difficult are reported. These patients underwent placement of a percutaneous gastrojejunostomy catheter through the reconstructed gastric tube using a slow-leak balloon that had been developed for percutaneous transesophageal gastrotubing. Retrospective evaluation showed successful outcomes without severe complications in all patients.

ConclusionsThe results suggest that CCPT is an effective treatment for cT1 ESCC and careful endoscopic follow-up allows preferable local control with salvage endoscopic treatment.
