Successful en bloc endoscopic full-thickness resection of a giant cervical esophageal leiomyoma originating from muscularis propria.

J Cardiothorac Surg 2019 Jan 21;14(1):16. Epub 2019 Jan 21.

Department of Gastroenterology, People's Hospital of Lianshui, 6 Hongri Road, Huaian, China.

Background: Esophageal leiomyomas, the most common benign primary tumors of the esophagus, are esophageal subepithelial lesions treated by surgery traditionally. In recent years, endoscopic submucosal dissection and related endoscopic treatment techniques are adopted by endoscopists to resect gastrointestinal submucosal tumors. But if a giant esophageal leiomyoma approaches the esophagus entrance and originates from the deep layer of muscularis propria, it will be difficult for both endoscopic resection and surgical treatment.

Gastrointestinal stromal tumor of the esophagus: current issues of diagnosis, surgery and drug therapy.

Transl Gastroenterol Hepatol 2018 22;3. Epub 2018 Jan 22.

Department of Surgery, Hiroshima City Asa Citizens Hospital, Asakita-ku, Hiroshima, Japan.

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) often arise in the stomach and small intestine, while esophageal GISTs are rare. Due to their rarity, clinicopathological data on esophageal GISTs are extremely limited, and this results in a lack of clear recommendations concerning optimal surgical management for esophageal GISTs. It is difficult to distinguish esophageal GIST from leiomyoma, the most frequent esophageal mesenchymal tumor, prior to resection, because the two types of tumors appear similar on computed tomography (CT), endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), and 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET).

Department of Radiology, Louisiana State University Health Shreveport, 1501 Kings Highway, Shreveport, LA 71130, United States. Electronic address:

A 57-year-old postmenopausal woman with end-stage liver disease secondary to alcoholic cirrhosis, esophageal varices, severe alcoholic cardiomyopathy, and metrorrhagia causing persistent anemia despite multiple transfusions presented with heavy vaginal bleeding. The patient underwent two uterine artery embolizations with proximal coils instead of directed particles due to difficult anatomy but the bleeding continued despite these interventions. Since she was a poor surgical candidate for hysterectomy, the decision was made to attempt achievement of hemostasis via ethanol injection into the uterine cavity. Read More

Minimally invasive surgery for giant esophageal leiomyoma: a case report & review of the literatures.

J Thorac Dis 2017 Jan;9(1):E26-E31

Department of Thoracic Surgery, Zhongshan Hospital of Fudan University, Shanghai 200032, China.

Despite the rapid development of minimally invasive surgery, the treatment of esophageal lesions remains controversial. Giant esophageal leiomyoma could be removed once diagnosed, but its operative method is not quite the same as esophageal leiomyoma of small size. We report a case of giant esophageal leiomyoma and review published cases of giant leiomyomas in the past 10 years. Read More

Comparison of endoscopic submucosal tunneling dissection and thoracoscopic enucleation for the treatment of esophageal submucosal tumors.

Gastrointest Endosc 2017 Sep 27;86(3):485-491. Epub 2016 Nov 27.

Guangdong Provincial Key Laboratory of Gastroenterology, Department of Gastroenterology, Nanfang Hospital, Southern Medical University, Guangzhou, China.

Background And Aims: Endoscopic submucosal tunneling dissection (ESTD) has been proved to be safe and effective for removal of esophageal submucosal tumors (SMTs) and can maintain the mucosal integrity compared with other endoscopic methods. The aim of the study was to estimate the safety and efficacy of ESTD as well as compare its efficacy with thoracoscopic enucleation for esophageal SMTs, which is used increasingly as a minimally invasive approach.

Methods: We retrospectively collected the clinical data of patients with esophageal SMTs <40 mm who underwent ESTD or thoracoscopic enucleation at Nanfang Hospital between January 2008 and August 2016. Read More
