Surgical strategies for adenocarcinoma of the esophagogastric junction

Abstract

This chapter summarizes the surgical strategies for adenocarcinomas of the distal esophagus, gastric cardia, and subcardial gastric cancer invading the cardia+/-distal esophagus known as adenocarcinomas of the esophagogastric junction (AEG). The different surgical approaches according to the tumor origin, localization, and tumor stage are addressed with particular attention to the extent and type of resection and appropriate lymphadenectomy (LAD). The classification of AEG according to Siewert is helpful for the selection of the surgical strategy. While type I tumors benefit from a transthoracic en bloc esophagectomy including a two-field LAD, type II and III tumors can be treated by an extended total gastrectomy with a transhiatal resection of the distal esophagus and LAD of the lower mediastinum and the abdominal D2 compartment. Limited resections appear to be -possible for early tumor stages in selected cases of type I-III tumors.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
