  • [Title] Treatment results of chemoradiotherapy for clinical stage I (T1N0M0) esophageal carcinoma.
  • PURPOSE: In 1991, we started a clinical prospective trial for operable esophageal carcinoma, foreseeing organ preservation, to assess the treatment results after definitive chemoradiotherapy (CRT) for clinical Stage I (T1N0M0) esophageal cancer.
  • Tumor depth was mucosal cancer (T1a) in 23 and submucosal cancer (T1b) in 40.
  • CRT consisted of 55-66 Gy/50-60 fractions (median, 59.4 Gy); from 1 to 3 cycles (median, 2) of concurrent chemotherapy (Cisplatin and 5-fluorouracil), followed by high-dose-rate intraluminal brachytherapy 10-12 Gy/2-3 fractions.
  • Esophageal fistula as a late toxicity occurred in 2 patients (G4: 1; G5: 1), and esophageal stricture requiring a liquid diet occurred in 2 patients.
  • CONCLUSION: We confirmed that patients with T1N0M0 esophageal carcinoma had their esophagus preserved in 89.2% of cases after definitive CRT, and the survival rates were equivalent to those of previous reports of surgery.

  • We report a case of surgically resected esophageal cancer which was locally recurred after endoscopic submucosal dissection.
  • A 66-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of further examination and a treatment of superficial esophageal cancer.
  • A type 0-IIb+IIa cancer occupying the whole circumference of the lumen of the middle to lower esophagus was revealed.
  • Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) was performed.
  • Pathological diagnosis was squamous cell carcinoma, moderately differentiated, the depth of tumor invasion was T1a-LPM.
  • After that, endoscopic balloon dilatation of the esophageal stenosis was performed repeatedly for about one year.
  • Then, he was diagnosed as the local recurrence of the squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus.
  • After the operation, he is receiving adjuvant chemotherapy and alive without recurrence.
  • When endoscopic resection of the esophageal cancer is performed to the lesion, which relatively indicated to endoscopic resection or outside the guideline criteria for endoscopic resection, it is important that we choose the appropriate treatment protocol obtaining an informed consent from the patient sufficiently.

  • A 55-year-old man developed progressive dysphagia 14 months after palliative colectomy and subsequent systemic chemotherapy for advanced cecal cancer with carcinomatosis peritonei.
  • Radiologic and endoscopic examinations suggested a submucosal tumor in the lower esophagus causing a severe luminal stricture.
  • The prosthesis was effective for several months, but ingrowth of the tumor caused re-stricture of the esophagus.
  • The pathological appearance of the tumor was compatible with the metastasis of cecal cancer.
  • Our case suggests that a surgical approach can be considered as a therapeutic method for metastatic esophageal tumor, even in patients with advanced cancer, as long as the primary tumor is satisfactorily controlled.

  • [Title] Effective treatment with chemotherapy and surgery for advanced small cell carcinoma of the esophagus.
  • An abdominal computed tomography scan showed massive ascites, extensive paracardial mass, a large mass which invaded the pancreas, and a mass of multiple para-aortic lymphadenopathies which involved the superior mesenteric artery.
  • An upper gastrointestinal endoscopic study revealed an infiltrative, ulcerating tumor of the lower esophagus.
  • Histological study of the biopsy specimens from esophageal tumor showed small cell carcinoma.
  • After combination chemotherapy, an abdominal computed tomography scan showed a disappearance of asites, a partial response reduction of paragastric mass, peripancreatic mass and para-aortic lymphadenopathies.
  • Histological study of the biopsy specimens from esophageal tumor showed a viable small cell carcinoma.
  • In June 2001, the patient underwent lower esophagectomy and proximal gastrectomy combined with splenectomy and distal pancreatectomy through an abdominal approach.
  • Histological findings of the resected specimen showed that the esophageal tumor was a small cell carcinoma which invaded into the submucosal layer, and both paracardial and peripancreatic tumors, and all lymph nodes had no cancer cells.
  • The patient's postoperative recovery was uneventful and discharged without aggressive chemotherapy postoperatively.
  • However, he eventually died of progression of the metastasis 21 months after first detection of the carcinoma.
  • Patients with esophageal small cell carcinoma treated with surgery following chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy have been reported to survive longer than those treated with chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy.
  • Therefore, surgical resection may be recommended as the second therapy that occasionally produces long-term remission and possibly long-term survival for patients with small cell carcinoma of the esophagus.

  • [Title] Small cell carcinoma with concomitant adenocarcinoma arising in a Barrett's oesophagus: report of a case with a favourable behaviour.
  • Most Barrett's oesophagus-associated cancers are adenocarcinomas which occur in a pure form.
  • They are rarely combined with another type of malignancy, such as endocrine tumours.
  • We report a case of composite SmCC and adenocarcinoma in the setting of a Barrett's oesophagus, in a 54-year-old man.
  • This tumour was identified on a surgical specimen after neoadjuvant treatment with radiotherapy and 5-FU-Cis-platin based chemotherapy.
  • In our case, the origin of the SmCC component could be explained by the numerous chromogranin A-positive cells observed in the Barrett's oesophagus or by the potential progenitor cells that may be located in the submucosal oesophageal gland ducts and the Barrett's metaplasia.
  • Our report is thus indicative of the high and totipotential risk of Barrett's oesophagus.
  • Moreover, it is particular because of its favourable behaviour, with a 6-year disease-free survival, after neoadjuvant chemoradiation, surgery and postoperative chemotherapy.

  • [Title] Laminin alpha1-chain shows a restricted distribution in epithelial basement membranes of fetal and adult human tissues.
  • Two novel monoclonal antibodies were raised and used to study the expression of laminin (Ln) alpha1-chain in developing and adult human tissues.
  • In both fetal and adult kidney, a distinct immunoreactivity was seen in basement membranes (BM) of most proximal tubules but not in the distal tubular or glomerular BM or in the basal laminae of blood vessels.
  • In the airways BM-confined reaction was only seen in fetal budding bronchial tubules (16-19 weeks) at the pseudoglandular stage of development.
  • In other adult tissues, immunoreactivity was found in BMs of thyroid, salivary, and mammary glands as well as in BMs of endometrium and endocervix, but not of ectocervix or vagina.
  • No immunoreactivity was found in BMs of most of the digestive tract, including the liver and pancreas, except for BMs of esophageal submucosal glands and duodenal Brunner's glands.
  • The results suggest that outside the central nervous system, Ln alpha1 chain shows a restricted and developmentally regulated expression in BMs of distinct epithelial tissues.

  • [Title] Basaloid cell carcinoma of the esophagus with a metastatic neck tumor of unknown origin: report of a case.
  • A 51-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with a tumor in the right anterior region of his neck.
  • Further investigations, including upper gastro-intestinal series and endoscopy, showed two flush lesions in the middle and lower thoracic esophagus.
  • He underwent esophagectomy with three-field lymph node dissection, including the neck tumor.
  • Histological findings revealed that the tumor in the middle thoracic esophagus was moderately differentiated SCC, and that the other tumor below it was basaloid cell carcinoma (BCC).
  • The depths of invasion were to the lamina propria mucosae for the former and to the submucosal layer for the latter.
  • A diagnosis of poorly differentiated SCC of unknown origin was made for the neck tumor.
  • Postoperative recombinant chemotherapy with cisplatin and 5-fluorouracil was given for the unknown primary site, which we still have not identified.
  • No recurrence of the esophageal cancer has been detected.

  • [Title] Alpha-Fetoprotein-producing esophageal adenocarcinoma: report of a case.
  • Alpha-fetoprotein (AFP)-producing esophageal tumors are extremely rare.
  • We report herein the case of a 51-year-old man found to have an AFP-producing adenocarcinoma arising from esophageal proper mucosa.
  • The patient presented for investigation of dysphagia, and esophagogram and endoscopy revealed a lesion about 2 cm in size with a depressed center surrounded by low nodular protrusions in the lower esophagus.
  • The tumor had infiltrated the submucosal layer, but there was no evidence of lymphatic or venous invasion.
  • Immunohistochemical study revealed tumor cells positive for AFP.
  • An elevated AFP level 2 years after the operation led us to suspect tumor recurrence; however, diagnostic imaging studies showed no evidence of a recurrence or metastases.
  • The serum AFP levels responded well to chemotherapy with transient decreased levels, but continued to rise until finally, 5 years after the operation, adenocarcinoma cells were detected in the pleural effusion.
  • Thus, careful monitoring of the serum AFP levels at regular intervals could be a useful marker to indicate recurrence of esophageal carcinoma.

  • We performed chemoradiation therapy (CRT) followed by an endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for three patients with esophageal cancer.
  • In all patients, CRT was effective in reducing tumor size, and the residual tumors were completely resected by ESD.
  • The combination of CRT plus subsequent ESD may be useful for treating patients with esophageal cancer who are not fit to undergo surgery.

  • [Title] [A case of adenoid cystic carcinoma of the thoracic esophagus after neoadjuvant chemotherapy].
  • A 60-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with a tumor in the thoracic esophagus, and squamous cell carcinoma was detected by endoscopic biopsy.
  • On computed tomography, the tumor was suspected of having invaded adjacent organs by so the patient was given neoadjuvant chemotherapy consisting of low-dose CDDP and 5-FU.
  • After 2 courses of chemotherapy, a subtotal esophagectomy was performed.
  • The resected specimen showed no residual squamous cell carcinoma but another tumor was found in the submucosal layer which had a cribiform pattern in a solid nest.
  • The tumor cells were positive for S-100 protein and an Alcian-blue-positive substance in the gland, so the tumor was diagnosed as an adenoid-cystic carcinoma.

  • [Title] [Progress in the treatment of gastrointestinal cancers due to introduction of neoadjuvant concept].
  • Formerly the treatment of gastrointestinal cancers was exclusively surgical.
  • Though the results were improved by increased radicality, the real progress was achieved by the introduction of multimodal therapy, particularly by the neoadjuvant concept.
  • The basic prerequisite for neoadjuvant treatment is precise staging and risk assessment.
  • (1) Early cancers, confined to the mucosal and submucosal layers, are approached with primary surgery. (2) Systemically metastasized tumors receive merely palliative treatment. (3) Locally advanced cancers are treated by neoadjuvant therapy.
  • Due to neoadjuvant treatment the tumor can be downsized (or downstaged) in some patients.
  • These are the responders benefiting from the therapy, because of the increased RO-resection rate, decreased recurrence rate and improved survival.
  • Neoadjuvant treatment considerably improved the chance for cure for patients with gastrointestinal cancers, thus this method became an evidence based treatment for locally advanced gastrointestinal cancers.

  • [Title] [Preoperative S-1/CDDP combination chemotherapy was effective in a case of local advanced gastric cancer].
  • INTRODUCTION: The prognosis of type 4 advanced gastric cancer is extremely poor, even the use of multidisciplinary treatment cannot provide satisfactory results.
  • Presented here is a case of highly advanced gastric cancer in which preoperative chemotherapy was effective and resection possible.
  • Type 4 advanced gastric cancer was strongly suspected.
  • Abdominal CT revealed no hepatic mass, but overall thickening of the gastric wall was noticeable and the lymph nodes in the area of the lesser curvature of the stomach and celiac artery were identified.
  • TREATMENT: Because of gastric cancer with suspected invasion of the left hepatic lobe and pancreas, it was decided to perform preoperative chemotherapy (S-1 + CDDP) and then perform a total gastrectomy.
  • Only scarring in the body and antrum was found, the enlargement was greatly reduced and visual inspection revealed no esophageal infiltration.
  • These findings showed preoperative chemotherapy to be effective.
  • Following the chemotherapy, a total gastrectomy in addition to splenectomy and cholecystectomy were performed.
  • Histopathological findings showed MLU, type 5, approx.
  • Along with the formation of fibrous scar tissue, an invasive growth of por 2 poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma was found from the submucosal layer to just beneath the serosal layer.
  • Therapeutic effect of the chemotherapy was Grade 2.
  • Post operative S-1 + CDDP was begun but nausea developed and S-1 was reduced.
  • Because of a decrease of neutrophils and nausea, the therapy was changed to UFT.
  • CONCLUSION: Preoperative chemotherapy (S-1 + CDDP) is a therapy which shows promise in reducing tumor size even in highly advanced gastric cancer.

  • [Title] [A case of recurrent GIST of the esophagus which completely responded to imatinib mesilate].
  • Middle and lower esophagectomy was performed in a 68-year-old man in 1997 for the local recurrence of esophageal submucosal tumor after enucleation of the tumor.
  • The tumor was first diagnosed as GIST in the histological examinations of the liver metastases.
  • However, 12 months after the hepatectomy, further recurrent lesions were found in multiple lymph nodes, in the remnant liver, and in the pancreas, as well as in the subcutaneous tissue.
  • Within 2 months,all detected recurrent lesions changed into liquid forms,and the size of the subcutaneous tumor was also remarkably reduced.
  • Accumulation of FDG was not seen on FDG-PET examination, suggesting the complete response of the tumor to Glivec.
