Toru Nakano

Kyobu Geka 2019 Sep;72(10):878-885

Department of Gastroenterologic Surgery, Tohoku Medical and Pharmaceutical University, Sendai, Japan.

Spontaneous esophageal rupture was first reported by Boerhaave in 1724 and typically occurs in conjunction with vomiting, retching, or swallowing a large food bolus. This condition is potentially life threatening and causes severe mediastinitis, empyema, and sepsis, unless appropriate and early treatment is initiated. Conventional surgical repair is recommended within 24 hours of initial onset. Read More

Department of Surgery, King Fahad Specialist Hospital, Dammam, Saudi Arabia.

BACKGROUND The diagnosis of Boerhaave's syndrome is often missed or delayed. This subsequently leads to a high mortality rate, which could be greatly reduced if treatment is instituted early, within 24 hours of perforation. Treatment ranges from conservative management to operative intervention depending on the time of presentation and the patient's clinical condition. Read More

Department of Surgery, Mercy University Hospital, Cork, Ireland.

Background: Spontaneous esophageal perforation (Boerhaave's syndrome) is a highly morbid condition traditionally associated with poor outcomes. The Pittsburgh perforation severity score (PSS) accurately predicts risk of morbidity, length of stay (LOS) and mortality. Operative management is indicated among patients with medium (3-5) or high (> 5) PSS; however, the role of minimally invasive surgery remains uncertain. Read More

A minimally invasive approach with a 3d imaging system for the treatment of esophageal perforation due to Boerhaave syndrome.

Ann Ital Chir 2018 Dec 19;7. Epub 2018 Dec 19.

Boerhaave's syndrome is a rare life-threatening condition that requires urgent surgical management. There are various methods of managing it, with the main principles of limiting sepsis, draining the area and maintaining nutrition. Although the gold standard is open thoracotomy and/or laparotomy, mostly in patients with sepsis, we present a case of a 53-year-old man treated with a combination of laparoscopic suture (3D imaging system) of the oesophageal perforation site, decompressive percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy and feeding jejunostomy.

Transition of a Mallory-Weiss syndrome to a Boerhaave syndrome confirmed by anamnestic, necroscopic, and autopsy data: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Dec;97(49):e13191

Department of Legal and Forensic Medicine, University of Genova, Genova.

Rationale: Spontaneous esophageal rupture (Boerhaave syndrome) is a rare, though frequently fatal, event. It is generally caused by a sudden increase in pressure inside the esophagus. In some cases, full-thickness perforations of the esophagus may develop from previous lesions that initially involve only the esophageal mucosa (Mallory-Weiss syndrome) and which, following further triggering events, give rise to a transmural lesion.

Spontaneous Intramural Esophageal Rupture: An Uncommon Presentation of Eosinophilic Esophagitis Requiring Endoscopic Clipping.

ACG Case Rep J 2018 26;5:e66. Epub 2018 Sep 26.

Division of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Western Michigan University, MD Homer Stryker School of Medicine, Kalamazoo, MI.

Spontaneous intramural esophageal rupture (SIER) is a form of acute esophageal trauma defined as an injury deeper than a Mallory-Weiss tear but not extending completely through the muscular propria as in Boerhaave syndrome. SIER is a rare complication of eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE); after extensive literature review, we found 7 case reports of SIER complicating EoE. We present a case of SIER complicating EoE in a 46-year-old man with an atypical presentation requiring endoscopic clipping to achieve successful hemostasis. Read More

Tension hydropneumothorax as the initial presentation of Boerhaave syndrome.

Respir Med Case Rep 2018 31;25:100-103. Epub 2018 Jul 31.

Department of Medicine, Pulmonary & Critical Care Section, David Geffen School of Medicine at University of California, Los Angeles, USA.

Boerhaave syndrome, a rare yet frequently fatal diagnosis, is characterized by the spontaneous transmural rupture of the esophagus. The classic presentation of Boerhaave syndrome is characterized by Mackler's triad, consisting of chest pain, vomiting, and subcutaneous emphysema. However, Boerhaave syndrome rarely presents with all the features of Mackler's triad; instead, the common presentation of Boerhaave syndrome includes chest or epigastric pain, severe retching and vomiting, dyspnea, and shock.

Regulating migration of esophageal stents - management using a Sengstaken-Blakemore tube: A case report and review of literature.

World J Gastroenterol 2018 Jul;24(28):3192-3197

Department of Surgery, Iwate Medical University, School of Medicine, Morioka, Iwate 020-0023, Japan.

Stent migration, which causes issues in stent therapy for esophageal perforations, can counteract the therapeutic effects and lead to complications. Therefore, techniques to regulate stent migration are important and lead to effective stent therapy. Here, in these cases, we placed a removable fully covered self-expandable metallic stent (FSEMS) in a 52-year-old man with suture failure after surgery to treat Boerhaave syndrome, and in a 53-year-old man with a perforation in the lower esophagus due to acute esophageal necrosis.

Boerhaave syndrome due to hypopharyngeal stenosis associated with chemoradiotherapy for hypopharyngeal cancer: a case report.

Surg Case Rep 2018 Jun 8;4(1):54. Epub 2018 Jun 8.

Department of Gastroenterological Surgery, Aichi Cancer Center Hospital, 1-1 Kanokoden, Chikusa-ku, Nagoya, Aichi, 464-8681, Japan.

Background: Spontaneous esophageal rupture, also known as Boerhaave syndrome, is a very serious life-threatening benign disease of the gastrointestinal tract. It is typically caused by vomiting after heavy eating and drinking. However, in our patient, because of a combination of hypopharyngeal cancer with stenosis and chemoradiotherapy (CRT), which caused chemotherapy-induced vomiting, radiotherapy-induced edema, relaxation failure, and delayed reflexes; resistance to the release of increased pressure due to vomiting was exacerbated, thus leading to Boerhaave syndrome.
