Gastro-Oesophageal Cancer

The epidemiology, aetiology and clinical aspects of gastro-oesophageal cancer are explored, as well as the treatment practices in different parts of the world and their impact on survival.

A multinational review: Oesophageal cancer in low to middle-income countries

Factors that contribute to the development of this disease in different geographical areas and genetic mechanisms governing these findings are discussed and the preventative treatment options for the disease are discussed.

Review: Surveillance of patients with Barrett oesophagus.

FDG PET in oesophagogastric cancer

The role of PETCT in oesophagogastric malignancy has become of increasing importance over the last decade, and the main role currently is in the staging of the tumour to plan the most appropriate therapy for each patient, alongside other techniques.

Adenosquamous Carcinoma of the Esophagus: A Literature Review

An audit of the available literature was performed and a review on the epidemiology, pathogenesis, histopathology, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of ASCs were synthesized.

Endoscopic management of Barrett's and early oesophageal neoplasia

Dysplasia and intramucosal cancer arising in BO can safely be treated with endoscopic eradication therapy (EET) due to the low risk of subsequent lymph node metastasis and the mainstay of treatment is endoscopic resection of visible lesions for accurate staging.

Oesophageal Carcinoma: An Atypical Presentation - A Case Report

A 62 year old Caucasian male who presented with acute dyspnoea with no respiratory history but was subsequently discovered to have an oesophageal carcinoma as the likely underlying cause is reported.

Histopathological landscape of rare oesophageal neoplasms

The aim of this review is to provide a comprehensive characterization of the main morphological and clinical features of these rare variants of oesophageal neoplastic lesions.



Barrett's oesophagus and oesophageal adenocarcinoma: time for a new synthesis

The public health importance of Barrett's oesophagus lies in its association with oesophageal adenocarcinoma. The incidence of oesophageal adenocarcinoma has risen at an alarming rate over the past

Chemoprevention of oesophageal cancer and the AspECT trial.

The AspECT trial is the biggest, multicentre, randomised controlled clinical trial looking at the long-term chemoprevention effect of esomeprazole with or without aspirin, and more than 85% of the participants tolerated the medications at the initial intended doses, and the drop-out rate has been 7%.

Surgical aspects of the patient with high-grade dysplasia.

The natural history of high grade dysplasia (HGD), difficulties in the diagnosis, the incidence of adenocarcinoma in resected specimens and the surgical aspects in the treatment of HGD, including minimally invasive esophagectomy are discussed.

Esophageal cancer: epidemiology, pathogenesis and prevention

Intensive research into risk factors combined with the ability to identify precursor lesions has paved the way for studies of chemoprevention for esophageal cancer, some of which have shown promising results.

Incidence of adenocarcinoma of the esophagus among white Americans by sex, stage, and age.

Rapid increases in the incidence of adenocarcinoma rates rose among white men and women in all stage and age groups, indicating that these increases are real and not an artifact of surveillance.

The epidemiology of esophageal cancer.

Examination of epidemiological aspects of cancers of the esophagus suggests that nutritional deficiencies and, possibly, ingestion of mycotoxins and nitrosamines are factors for the development of esophageal cancer.

Symptomatic gastroesophageal reflux as a risk factor for esophageal adenocarcinoma.

There is a strong and probably causal relation between gastroesophageal reflux and esophageaal adenocarcinoma, and the relation between reflux And gastric cardia is relatively weak.

The role of overdiagnosis and reclassification in the marked increase of esophageal adenocarcinoma incidence.

The rising incidence of esophageal adenocarcinoma represents a real increase in disease burden and overdiagnosis can be excluded as an explanation for the rise in incidence.

Adenocarcinoma of the oesophagus: incidence and survival rates in New South Wales, 1972–2005

To investigate trends in the incidence of adenocarcinoma of the oesophagus in New South Wales, factors associated with a diagnosis of AC, and factors related to survival of patients with AC are investigated.
