Multi-Center Prospective Randomized Trial Comparing Standard Esophagectomy Against Chemo-Radiotherapy for Treatment of Squamous Esophageal Cancer – Early Results From the Chinese University Research Group for Esophageal Cancer (CURE)
A multicenter randomized comparison of primary esophagectomy against definitive chemoradiotherapy for the treatment of squamous esophageal cancer.
Esophageal cancer is a debilitating condition. The treatment involved is complex requiring a combination of chemotherapy and surgery in most cases. Complete removal of the tumor and the ad...
The purpose of this study is to test 2 different methods of surgery to remove cancer in the esophagus. This research is being done to see whether removing more tissue and lymph nodes sur...
We hypothesize that one-cycle induction chemotherapy may also help to identify chemo-responsive esophageal cancer patients who are highly treatable by definitive CCRT.
To compare laparoscopically-assisted gastric mobilization versus open gastric mobilization in Ivor-Lewis esophagectomy for esophageal cancer, with open thoracic approach in the 2 arms.
Postoperative complications, especially pulmonary complications, affect more than half the patients who undergo open esophagectomy for esophageal cancer. Whether hybrid minimally invasive esophagectom...
We investigated the operative outcomes of thoracoscopic esophagectomy (TE) in the prone position, using the concept of total meso-esophageal excision for esophageal cancer.
Minimally invasive esophagectomy (MIE) was introduced in the 1990s with the aim to decrease the rate of respiratory complications associated with thoracotomy, along with the benefits of reduced morbid...
Malnutrition is common in patients with esophageal cancer, resulting in increased postoperative complications and mortality. Although preoperative immunonutrition can significantly reduce the incidenc...
We previously developed a novel non-trans thoracic esophagectomy, the single-port inflatable mediastinoscopy combined with laparoscopy for the radical esophagectomy of esophageal cancer. The purpose o...
Tumors or cancer of the ESOPHAGUS.
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.
Excision of part (partial) or all (total) of the esophagus. (Dorland, 28th ed)
Circular innermost layer of the ESOPHAGUS wall that mediates esophageal PERISTALSIS which pushes ingested food bolus toward the stomach.
