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...

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.

AbstractBackgroundNeutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) is a diagnostic marker for acute kidney injury (AKI). NGAL expression is highly induced not only in kidney injury but also in bacterial infection, inflammation, and cancer. The factors regulating NGAL expression are proinflammatory cytokines, and plasma NGAL levels have been increased in septic shock. However, there are no reports of urine neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (uNGAL) levels after open esophagectomy.MethodsWe prospectively enrolled critically ill patients, including patients with sepsis (n = 45) and patients who underwen...

ConclusionsAfter the checklist and the criteria were introduced, the administration of stress ulcer prophylaxis medications decreased without an increase in upper gastrointestinal bleeding in critically ill adults. Prospective studies are necessary to evaluate the causal relationship between the introduction of them and gastrointestinal adverse events in critically ill adults.

The natural history of hiatal herniation of small and/or large bowel post esophagectomy (HHBPE), in the current era of improving long term survival and evolving surgical technique, is unknown. The aim of this study is to describe the rate and risk factors of HHBPE at our hospital.
