Salvage esophagectomy for initially unresectable locally advanced T4 esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.

08:00 EDT 8th October 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Salvage esophagectomy for initially unresectable locally advanced T4 esophageal squamous cell carcinoma."

Definitive chemoradiotherapy (dCRT) for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is a potentially curative treatment modality, even for patients with unresectable T4 tumors. For patients who fail dCRT, salvage esophagectomy is known to be a high-risk procedure. However, the efficacy and safety of salvage surgery for these patients remain unclear.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An alternative to amputation in patients with neoplasms, ischemia, fractures, and other limb-threatening conditions. Generally, sophisticated surgical procedures such as vascular surgery and reconstruction are used to salvage diseased limbs.

A therapeutic approach, involving chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgery, after initial regimens have failed to lead to improvement in a patient's condition. Salvage therapy is most often used for neoplastic diseases.

Neoplasms composed of squamous cells of the epithelium. The concept does not refer to neoplasms located in tissue composed of squamous elements.

A pathological condition characterized by the presence of a number of ESOPHAGEAL DIVERTICULA in the ESOPHAGUS.

Surgical incision of the lower esophageal sphincter near the CARDIA often used to treat ESOPHAGEAL ACHALASIA.
