Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) has been widely accepted as the treatment for early-stage esophageal epithelial neoplasms. However, stricture is a common complication after large-circumference ...
Dysphagia in patients with lung cancer is usually due to direct invasion from bronchogenic carcinomas or nodal localizations, while metastases from distant lung neoplasms are considered rare. We repo...
Esophageal manometry has shown its usefulness to estimate transpulmonary pressure, that is lung stress, and the intensity of spontaneous effort in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome. Ho...
The assessment of the esophageal motility of children with esophageal disorders by the detailed observation of the pH-multichannel intraluminal impedance waveform and baseline impedance: screening test potential.
The present study aimed to evaluate whether the detailed observation of pH/MII waveforms and the analysis of baseline impedance (BI) values could detect esophageal dysmotility in pediatric patients wi...
BACKGROUND : Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) has been widely used to treat superficial esophageal neoplasms (SENs). Intraoperative bleeding is one of the main concerns that makes ESD in the e...
