Triangulating stapling vs functional end-to-end stapling for cervical esophagogastric anastomosis after esophagectomy for thoracic esophageal cancer: study protocol for a randomized controlled trial.

Trials 2019 Jan 28;20(1):83. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Second Department of Surgery, School of Medicine, Wakayama Medical University, 811-1, Kimiidera, Wakayama, 641-8510, Japan.

Background: Several studies have reported that the triangulating stapling method decreases the incidence of anastomotic stricture after esophagectomy. Our previous randomized controlled trial, however, could not confirm the superiority of the triangulating stapling (TS) method over the circular stapling (CS) method in terms of postoperative anastomotic stricture rate. Recently, the functional end-to-end stapling (FEES) method for cervical anastomosis after esophagectomy was developed, and lower anastomotic stricture rates with FEES have been reported than for our previously experienced anastomotic methods.

Efficacy of triamcinolone-soaked polyglycolic acid sheet plus fully covered metal stent for preventing stricture formation after large esophageal endoscopic submucosal dissection.

Dis Esophagus 2019 Feb;32(2)

Department of Gastroenterology, Chinese PLA General Hospital, Beijing, China.

Esophageal stricture is a major problem for patients with large superficial esophageal squamous cell neoplasms (SESCNs) after endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD). Although many measures could be used as prophylaxis for post-ESD strictures, a well-accepted method has not yet been established. We propose using a triamcinolone-soaked polyglycolic acid sheet plus fully covered metal stent (TS-PGA+FCMS) as a novel method to prevent stricture formation after large esophageal ESD. Read More

Drainage Tubeless (DRESS) Bypass Surgery as the Best Palliative Care for Unresectable Thoracic Esophageal Cancer with and without Esophago-Respiratory Fistula.

Ann Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 2018 Dec 11. Epub 2018 Dec 11.

Department of Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, Miyazaki University Hospital, Miyazaki, Miyazaki, Japan.

Approximately half of the patients with esophageal cancer are diagnosed at an advanced stage with inoperable disease. The technique of bypass surgery, which is one of the palliative procedures for esophageal cancer, usually requires the insertion of a drainage tube for clearing secretions from the blind remnant esophagus. Since the artificial drainage tube is sometimes problematic for the patient after discharge from the hospital, drainage tubeless (DRESS) surgery might be preferable. Read More
