CD51 is an independent unfavorable prognostic factor in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma
ConclusionThese data suggested CD51 was a predictor for the prognosis of ESCC patients.
We present a case of a 49-year-old female who consulted for dysphagia, epigastric pain, and anorexia 17 years after LAGB. An esophageal squamous cell carcinoma was diagnosed in the distal esophagus, close to the lap band. The diagnostic value of the performed contrast swallow study seemed limited. We suggest that a routinely gastroscopic evaluation in the long-term follow-up after LAGB should be str ived for in patients presenting with late-onset dysphagia.
ConclusionLate ‐course sequential boost 3‐DCRT is safe and feasible with promising long‐term outcomes for esophageal SCC.
Conditions: Clinical Stage I Esophageal Adenocarcinoma AJCC v8; Clinical Stage I Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma AJCC v8; Clinical Stage I Gastroesophageal Junction Adenocarcinoma AJCC v8; Clinical Stage II Esophageal Adenocarcinoma AJCC v8; Clinical Stage II Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinom a AJCC v8; Clinical Stage II Gastroesophageal Junction Adenocarcinoma AJCC v8; Clinical Stage IIA Esophageal Adenocarcinoma AJCC v8; Clinical Stage IIA Gastroesophageal Junction Adenocarcinoma AJCC v8; Clinical Stage IIB Esophageal Adenocarcinoma AJCC v8; Clinica...
ConclusionsTUBB3 negative expression prior treatment and pCR may indicate a better prognosis for stage II and III ESCC patients after nab-paclitaxel plus cisplatin neoadjuvant chemotherapy following radical esophagectomy.
ConclusionAccording to current evidence, combined testing for human papillomavirus andPAX1 methylation analysis represents an efficacious cervical cancer ‐screening protocol.
ConclusionsOur preliminary results demonstrate that this technique is safe and feasible for treating esophageal cancer within an acceptable length of operation time, which does not compromise the surgical radicality.
Conclusions: Overall, 18F-FDG PET/CT have a moderate to low sensitivity and a high to moderate specificity for detection of regional nodal metastasis in esophageal cancer. Therefore, since the false rate is considerable, extending the extent of lymph node dissection or radiotherapy target volume is necessary after diagnosis of regional nodal metastasis by 18F-FDG PET/CT.

Abstract The study aimed to explore the relationship of microsomal epoxide hydrolase (mEH) exon 3 (Tyr113His) and exon 4 (His139Arg) polymorphisms and predicted mEH activity with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) risk. 482 histologically confirmed cases and equal number of matched controls were analyzed by polymerase chain reaction-restriction length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP). Conditional logistic regression models were used to examine the association of polymorphisms with ESCC. We noted exon 3 slow genotype (OR = 6.57; CI 3.43-12.57) as well as predicted low mEH activity (OR = 3....
AbstractBackgroundInsufficient blood supply in the gastric tube is considered as a risk factor for postoperative anastomotic strictures in patients receiving esophagectomy, but the direct evidence is lacking.AimsWe aimed to investigate the correlation between perioperative blood supply in the anastomotic area of the gastric tube and the formation of anastomotic strictures in the patients undergoing esophagectomy.MethodsThis prospective study included 60 patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma undergoing Ivor Lewis esophagectomy between March 2014 and February 2016, which were divided into stricture group (n&...
