BACKGROUND The usefulness of clip traction in endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for early esophageal carcinoma was investigated. METHODS A total of 87 patients who underwent ESD for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma were included in the study. The hook knife method was used for ESD. Twenty patients underwent ESD without clip traction (non-clip(More)
The present research was intended to determine the suitability of the CALUX assay as a screening method for dioxins in fish oil used as a feed ingredient in Japan. Alteration of TEQ in fish oil according to newly proposed toxic equivalency factors (TEF) is also discussed. In the analysis, polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans (PCDD/Fs) and(More)
Primary esophageal mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma is rare. There have been few reports about early primary esophageal MALT lymphoma being treated endoscopically. The clinical profile of primary esophageal MALT lymphoma is currently unclear, so it is important to accumulate more information about early esophageal MALT lymphoma. To achieve(More)
Although chemotherapy consisting of cisplatin and 5-fluorouracil(CF)has been a standard regimen for esophageal cancer, it might be difficult to use continuously. This study evaluated the response and safety of docetaxel plus S-1 used as a second line therapy. We reviewed 21 patients(postoperatively, 11; after definitive chemoradiotherapy, 8; after(More)
Chemoradiotherapy (CRT) has been performed for locally advanced thoracic esophageal carcinoma. To evaluate the outcome of induction CRT followed by esophagectomy, we compared it with that of definitive CRT. Of 121 patients with T3–T4 squamous cell carcinoma who received CRT, 39 patients received induction CRT (total, 30–50 Gy) followed by esophagectomy and(More)
An 81-year-old woman presented with left hypochondrial pain and vomiting. CT showed incarceration of the entire stomach in the left pleural cavity with esophageal hiatus hernia with mesenteroaxial gastric volvulus. We diagnosed upside down stomach. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy showed no impairment of blood supply to the gastric mucosa and she had(More)
