Thoracoscopic removal of dental prosthesis impacted in the upper thoracic esophagus

Dental appliances are the most common cause of accidental foreign body esophageal impaction, especially in the elderly population with decreased oral sensory perception. A 47-year-old man with history of oligophrenia and recurrent epileptic seizures was referred to our hospital following dislocation and ingestion of his upper dental prosthesis.

Chylotorax is a relatively uncommon and difficult to treat complication after esophagectomy for cancer. We report a case of a young adult male who underwent neoadjuvant chemoradiationtherapy followed by Ivor-Lewis esophagectomy for a squamous-cell carcinoma of the distal esophagus. During the postoperative course the patient presented recurrent episodes of hemodynamic instability...

In addition the introduction of functional imaging modalities such as PET-CT created new opportunities for a more adequate patient selection and therapy response assessment. The majority of oesophageal carcinomas are...

Traditional invasive vs. minimally invasive esophagectomy: a multi-center, randomized trial (TIME-trial)

Background There is a rise in incidence of esophageal carcinoma due to increasing incidence of adenocarcinoma. Probably the only curative option to date is the use of neoadjuvant therapy followed by surgical resection. Traditional open esophageal resection is associated with a high morbidity and mortality rate. Furthermore, this approach involves long intensive care unit stay, in...

Results of surgical therapy in patients with adenocarcinoma of the esophagus and cardia

Adenocarcinoma of the esophagus and cardia is a challenging disease for the surgeon. Delay in diagnosis, nodal involvement, and incompleteness of resection have an adverse effect on long-term prognosis. Efforts are currently oriented to identify patients who may benefit from extensive resection. Methods. Between November 1992 and May 1998, 218 patients with histologically proven...
