Endoscopic submucosal multi-tunnel dissection for large early esophageal cancer lesions.

CONCLUSION: ESMTD is a safe and efficient technique for treating large early esophageal cancer lesions. Grasping the key techniques of this procedure can reduce operating difficulty and shorten the operating time. PMID: 31566321 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Asai S, Fukaya M, Fujieda H, Igami T, Tsunoda N, Sakatoku Y, Kamei Y, Miyata K, Nagino M Abstract A 71-year-old woman with dysphagia was diagnosed with thoracic esophageal squamous cell carcinoma by endoscopic biopsy at another hospital. She had previously undergone partial breast excision with axillary lymph node dissection for right breast cancer eleven years earlier and subtotal stomach-preserving pancreatoduodenectomy with Child's reconstruction for ampullary cancer ten years earlier. Gastrointestinal endoscopy showed a stricture due to a bulging submucosal tumor in the mid-thoracic esophagus. The tumo...

This study evaluated clinical relevance of FDG-PET and ME-NBI in decision-making regarding the treatment strategy for ESCC. AIM: To investigate the association between FDG uptake and the clinicopathological characteristics of superficial ESCC and its usefulness of combination of FDG-PET and ME-NBI for determining the treatment strategy for superficial ESCC. METHODS: A database of all patients with superficial ESCC who had undergone both ME-NBI and FDG-PET for pre-treatment staging at Aichi Cancer Center Hospital between January 2008 and November 2018 was retrospectively analyzed. FDG uptake was defined positive o...

ConclusionAngiogenesis at the early stage of ESCC progression is configured by the balance between accelerator (angiogenic factors from both cancer cells and SMCs) and brake (angiogenic inhibitor) factors.

Abstract Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) and esophagogastric junction adenocarcinoma (EGJA) are the two main types of gastrointestinal cancers that pose a huge threat to human health. ESCC remains one of the most common malignant diseases around the world. In contrast to the decreasing prevalence of ESCC, the incidence of EGJA is rising rapidly. Early detection represents one of the most promising ways to improve the prognosis and reduce the mortality of these cancers. Current approaches for early diagnosis mainly depend on invasive and costly endoscopy. Non-invasive biomarkers are in great need to facil...

Authors: Tsunoda M, Miura Y, Osawa H, Khurelbaatar T, Sakaguchi M, Fukuda H, Lefor AK, Yamamoto H Abstract A 62-year-old man with a flat early esophageal cancer was referred for endoscopic treatment. White light imaging revealed a pale red lesion, whereas linked color imaging (LCI) and blue laser imaging (BLI) yielded purple and brown images, respectively. Iodine staining demonstrated a large unstained area with a homogenous but very weak pink-color sign. This area appeared more clearly as purple and green on LCI and BLI, respectively; however, a different colored portion was observed at the 4 o'clock position insi...

Conclusion: In Feicheng population, tobacco smoking or alcohol consumption may not be risk factors of EPLs. Low-quality drinking water raised the EPLs risk. Bad house heating materials, such as cereal straw, may lead to high EPLs risk.

Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is a useful and curative treatment for noninvasive superficial esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (SESCC). However, metachronous esophageal cancer (MEC) is commonly observed in the background mucosa after ESD. Varying risk factors of MEC have been reported by different studies.

Head and neck carcinoma tends to happen synchronous or metachronous with esophageal carcinoma. Early cancer of pharynx is occasionally found during EGD exam, ESD is a mininally invasive treatment compared to the traditional surgery for it does not change the anatomy of the pharynx. Performing ESD in such a narrow and complicated space require skills.In this case,we finished a ESD at epiglottis sucessfully with no complication. The final pathology result was squamous cell caner(m1). no recurence was found during follow-up.
