The role of endoscopy in the assessment and treatment of esophageal cancer

Nov 14, 2016, 20:27 PM
The management of esophageal cancer remains clinically challenging, not only in terms of identifying patients at high risk, but also because of the overall poor prognosis of the disease. While cancers diagnosed through a Barrett’s esophagus (BE) surveillance program may be early stage, most esophageal cancers are diagnosed after symptoms develop and tumors are locally advanced. In 2008, there were 16,640 new cases and 14,500 deaths due to esophageal cancer reported in the United States,3 and there were an estimated 400,000 deaths caused by esophageal cancer worldwide.4 This document is an update of the 2003 ASGE guidelines describing the endoscopic aspects of managing esophageal cancer and will discuss diagnosis, staging, endoscopic treatments, and palliation.
