Endoscopic ultrasonography in the management of esophageal cancer

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Precise tumor-staging is critical in the management of early esophageal cancer. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) allows the endoscopist a view beyond the esophageal wall which opens the door to a variety of new gastroenterologic techniques. Endoscopic mucosal resection, laser photoablation and photodynamic therapy may be successfully employed in early esophageal cancer management. Combination radiation therapy and chemotherapy have shown better responses in advanced cancer. Expandable metallic stents may also provide palliation with inoperable esophageal cancer. The efficacy of EUS in the management of esophageal cancer is critically reviewed.
