Some centers report prolonged survival after chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and esophagectomy combined with regional node dissection. Indications for stenting an inoperable esophageal carcinoma are obstruction or ﬁstula. The procedure of choice for an inoperable carcinoma, especially in underdeveloped countries, is often a plastic stent inserted under endoscopic guidance without general anesthesia and requiring only a short hospital stay (73). Numerous commercial stents are available and new ones continue to be introduced.
In Shanghai, esophageal cancer rates have decreased more than 50% over an 18-year period ending in 1989 (56), in the United States an increase is found among black men, while in Scotland, both adenocarcinoma and squamous carcinoma have been increasing both in men and women. Adenocarcinoma: Discussed here are adenocarcinomas arising both in the esophagus and in the gastric cardia (at the gastroesophageal junction). Prior literature debated whether the latter tumors should be considered esophageal or gastric in origin, but from a clinical viewpoint little justiﬁes their separate consideration; the resultant surgical approach is similar.
Lymph node metastasis is uncommon if an adenocarcinoma is limited to the mucosa, is present in <20% of patients when a cancer extends to the submucosa, and increases further with deeper tumor extension (Fig. 22). Complications Esophageal neoplasms necrose and ﬁstulize to adjacent structures, including trachea and major bronchi (Fig. 23). Imaging detection of tumor invasion into the tracheoesophageal fat plane increases the likelihood of future tracheoesophageal ﬁstula formation. Unusual ones include an esophagosubarachnoid ﬁstula (69) and even lower extremity subcutaneous emphysema, with psoas muscles presumably serving as a pathway (70).
