We searched the computerized pathology database at our hospital for a 1-year period (May 1, 2016-April 30, 2017) for all patients who underwent upper gastrointestinal endoscopy with EGJ and/or distal esophagus biopsy.
In the present study, PAM was found in 15.9% of biopsies from the EGJ. This prevalence rate is slightly lower than that reported by Wang et al (2) but higher than that originally reported by Doglioni and colleagues.
Afterwards, a piece of tissue including the EGJ and the proximal gastrectomy line was resected and gently washed.
(vi) Peristaltic breaks (PB): gaps (cm) in the 20 mmHg isobaric contour of the peristaltic contraction between the UES and EGJ (measured in axial length)
We searched Pubmed and Embase for studies correlating the presence of PNI with patients' survival in esophageal and EGJ carcinoma published up to July 30, 2015.
For cancers of the esophago-gastric junction (EGJ), which are staged as esophageal cancers rather than gastric cancers, the decision is more complex.
(12-19) Within a similar time period, the International Mesothelioma Interest Group, the International Thymic Malignancy Interest Group (ITMIG), and the Worldwide Esophageal Cancer Collaboration, in conjunction with the IASLC, developed proposals, assembled databases, and recommended tumor, node, metastasis (TNM) system categories for mesothelioma (N = 3519), (20-23) thymic epithelial tumors (N = 10 808), (24-27) and esophageal/ esophagogastric junction (EGJ) cancers.
The integrated relaxation pressure (IRP) which is the mean of 4 s of maximal deglutitive relaxation in the 10 s window beginning at upper esophageal sphincter (UES) relaxation [6] was used to evaluate esophagogastric junction (EGJ) relaxation.
After general anesthesia, the esophagogastric junction (EGJ) was reached with the transparent cap attached to the distal of endoscopy, and the distance from EGJ to incisors was measured by the scale along the scope.
The esophagogastric junction (EGJ), the region between which the stratified squamous mucosa-lined esophagus ends and the columnar mucosa-lined stomach begins, can be defined anatomically, physiologically, endoscopically, and histologically as either muscular or mucosal in nature.
The diagnosis of FH was made based on the following criteria: (i) presence of heartburn as the predominant symptom, (ii) no evidence of gastroesophageal reflux (normal MII/pH monitoring results) or eosinophilic esophagitis as the cause of the symptoms, (iii) no major esophageal motor disorders (achalasia/esophagogastric junction (EGJ) outflow obstruction, diffuse esophageal spasm, jackhammer esophagus, or absent peristalsis), and (iv) presence of FH for the last 3 months, with symptom onset at least 6 months before diagnosis at a frequency of at least twice a week [1-3].
The esophagogastric junction (EGJ) is exposed for 6 to 8 cm proximally, and the myotomy is performed longitudinally in the anterior esophageal axis (Figure 1) using blunt dissection, electric hook, scissors, or the harmonic scalpel.
