Paraconduit hernia in the era of minimally invasive esophagectomy: Underdiagnosed?

CONCLUSIONS: Post-esophagectomy paraconduit hernia is more common following totally minimally invasive esophagectomy compared with open or hybrid techniques. One-third are symptomatic and the remainder detected only radiographically. Repair of asymptomatic hernias should take into consideration the patient's cancer prognosis.

Authors: Musio F Abstract INTRODUCTION: Anemia has and will continue to be a central theme in medicine particularly as clinicians are treating a burgeoning population of complex multi-organ system processes. As a result of multiple randomized controlled trials (RCTs), meta-analyses, and societal recommendations overly restrictive paradigms and under-administration of erythropoiesis stimulating agents (ESAs) have likely been followed by clinicians among all specialties. AREAS COVERED: A review of anemia in the context of chronic kidney disease, hematologic malignancies and cancer is presented with focus on the e...

ConclusionsThe incidence of symptomatic diaphragmatic hernia after esophagectomy was 2.5%, with the highest incidence after minimally invasive Ivor Lewis esophagectomy (9.4%) as compared with other procedures. Although prophylactic cruroplasty is now the standard of care in patients undergoing minimally invasive esophagectomy, a significant lower hernia rate was not found in this study.

Both hiatal hernias (HH) and morbid obesity significantly contribute to gastroesophageal reflux disease which increases the risk for esophagitis and esophageal cancer. Therefore, concomitant HH repair is recommended during bariatric surgery procedures. Unfortunately, recurrence of HH following repair is not uncommon and the optimal surgical technique has yet to be established.

This study showed us that the matrix bound vesicles are clearly active, can influence cellular behavior and are possibly the primary mechanism by which bioscaffolds cause tissue regrowth in the body." Link: http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2016-07/uops-prs072816.php

We report the case of a 78-year-old man who underwent total gastrectomy with antecolic Roux-Y reconstruction for residual gastric cancer. He had alcoholic liver cirrhosis and received radical laparoscopic proximal gastrectomy for gastric cancer 3 years ago. Early gastric cancer in the remnant stomach was found by routine upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. We initially performed endoscopic submucosal dissection, but the vertical margin was positive in a pathological result. We performed total gastrectomy with antecolic Roux-Y reconstruction by laparotomy. For adhesion of the esophageal hiatus, the left chest was connected wi...

Conclusion HHAE is not rare and is often unrecognized. As more patients with esophageal cancer survive, the number of patients becoming symptomatic and requiring repair may also rise. Therefore, it is important to consider this diagnosis when following patients long-term after esophagectomy.
