Diagnostic Accuracy of Magnifying Endoscopy with Narrow Band Imaging and Its Diagnostic Value for Invasion Depth Staging in Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

Conclusions: ME-NBI provides a high diagnostic rate in evaluating the esophagus to diagnose squamous cell carcinoma. In the differentiation for invasion depth staging, ME-NBI was demonstrated to be superior to white light endoscopy and had a similar diagnostic rate compared with HF-EUS. However, HF-EUS had high positive likelihood values for invasion depth staging, suggesting that HF-EUS is a reliable method for confirming invasion depth staging. PMID: 29888281 [PubMed - in process]

WhiteAbstractBackgroundEsophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is common in certain areas worldwide. One area, western Kenya, has a high risk of ESCC, including many young cases (18 years of age who were accompanying relatives to an endoscopy unit were recruited to participate. The preferred initial temperature of chai consumption in th...

Esophageal cancer is the eighth most common cancer worldwide and represents the sixth leading cause of global cancer mortality.1 Although esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) now accounts for the majority of esophageal cancer diagnosed in the United States, esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) remains far more prevalent worldwide. The International Agency for Research on Cancer estimates that 88% of esophageal cancer cases in 2012 were ESCC, with only 12% representing EAC. ESCC exhibits a striking regional variation in incidence, both globally and within a single nation.

We describe the case of a 62-year-old gentleman who underwent primary resection and adjuvant radiation therapy for supraglottic squamous cell carcinoma who subsequently underwent salvage total laryngectomy with pectoralis major muscle flap reconstruction. During a later esophageal dilation for complaints of dysphagia, a new exophytic lesion of the hypopharynx was biopsied on endoscopy. The lesion was excised via transoral robotic surgery with final pathology revealing squamous cell carcinoma completely confined to the skin paddle of the pectoralis flap and arising from the epidermis of the skin flap. No further therapy was...

Conclusion Using our institutions’ strategy, ESD for SESCCs with minimum lateral margins was oncologically acceptable; this approach could reduce the known risk factor of post-ESD stricture.

Conclusion These findings confirm the efficacy of ESD for superficial esophageal cancer in selected elderly patients (75 years or older) who were fit for the treatment because they can achieve similar long-term survival to younger patients.

Authors: Tanaka Y, Hirata D, Fujii S, Kusaka T, Shibuya S Abstract An 80-year-old man was found to have a reddish depressed lesion on the middle thoracic esophagus. The morphology of the lesion had been almost unchanged for 3 years, but it transformed to a 2-cm depressed lesion with elevated margins and an irregular nodular surface. The lesion was resected endoscopically and ultimately diagnosed as a combined neuroendocrine carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma with submucosal invasion. The patient was additionally treated with chemoradiotherapy but died of the primary disease eight months after the initial treatme...

Rationale: While performing esophago-ileal anastomosis after esophagectomy with circular staplers, the mucosal folds of the ileum can complicate stapling and lead to obstruction, especially when the diameter of the circular stapler is equal or greater than that of the small bowel lumen. Patient concerns: A 53-year-old man, presented with complaints of difficulty in swallowing for 2 weeks. Fifteen years previously, he had undergone partial gastrectomy for gastric ulcers. Diagnosis: The endoscopy showed that there was a large ulcer in the middle-third of the esophagus, about 28 to 32 cm from the incisors. Biopsy ...

We thank Drs Yang, Ma, and Li for their insightful comments1 on our review article regarding screening advances in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.2 We agree that minimally invasive methods currently in development for the detection and surveillance of Barrett ’s esophagus (BE)3 can likely improve the yield of screening and evaluating for squamous cell carcinoma.
