1 Adenocarcinoma of Gastroesophageal Junction Joint Hospital Surgical Grand Round8th November, 2014Prepared by Dr. Rain SoKwong Wah Hospital
2 Outline of Presentation DefinitionsClassification of adenocarcinoma of OGJSurgical approachNeoadjuvant therapy in locally advanced disease
3 Definitions Gastric cardia OGJ The squamocolumnar junction (Z-line) Zone of the stomach adjacent to the orifice of the tubular esophagusOGJEndoscopically: The proximal margin of longitudinal gastric mucosal foldsAnatomically: At the level of the angle of HisThe squamocolumnar junction (Z-line)The visible line formed by the juxtaposition of squamous and columnar epithelia, 3-10mm proximal to OGJ
4 Classification of OGJ tumour Described by Dr. SiewertOGJ tumor: All tumours that have their center within 5 cm proximal or distal to the anatomical OGJ.The classification was approved at the consensus meetings of the 7th International Society of Diseases of the Esophagus in 1995 and the 2nd International Gastric Cancer Congress in Munich 1997
5 Classification 1cm to 5cm above OGJ 1cm above to 2 cm below OGJ 2cm to 5cm below OGJ
7 Surgical treatment Primary Aim: R0 resection Adequate lymphadenectomy Complete resection of primary tumourType I:Intramural spread, multiple satellite tumoursReported incidence of residual tumour at the resection margin: 5-35%*Adequate lymphadenectomyStipa S, Di Giorgio A, Ferri M.

8 Topic to be discussedOptimal proximal resection and surgical approach in esophagectomy for type ISurgical approach for Type II/IIIOptimal lymph node dissection in type II/III
9 Extent of oesophageal resection No infiltration was observed in patients whose proximal margin exceeded 7 cm.Median survival rate in PPRM 11.1 months Vs NPRM months (p<0.02)No difference in postoperative mortality and morbidity rates, in anastomotic leakage or recurrence rates.Conclusion: 8cm proximal margin is considered to be adequate.C.

10 Type I Phase III trial in Netherlands (Dutch trial) Right thoracic approach Vs Transhiatal esophagectomy in type IMore pulmonary complications and chylous leakage (57% vs 27%, P<0.001; 10% vs 2%, p=0.002)Longer ICU/Hospital stay (6 vs 2 days, p<0.01 and 19 vs 15 days, p<0.001)14% survival benefit in RTA group in Type I patients (51% Vs 37%, p=0.33)5 years locoreginal disease-free survival was better in RTA group (1-8 + nodal mets) (64% Vs 23%, p=0.02)THE-During THE, the esophagus was dissected under direct vision through the widened hiatus of the diaphragm, at least up to the inferior pulmonary vein. The tumor and its adjacent lymph nodes were dissected en bloc.-A 3-cm-wide gastric tube was constructed. The left gastric artery was transected at its origin, with resection of local lymph nodes. Celiac lymph nodes were dissected only when there was clinical suspicion of involvement.-After right-sided mobilization of the cervical esophagus, the intrathoracic, normal esophagus was bluntly resected from the neck to the abdomen with use of a vein stripper.-Esophagogastrostomy was performed in the neck, without cervical/upper/middle lymphadenectomy.TTE-Posterolateral thoracotomy was the first step in transthoracic resection with extended en bloc lymphadenectomy. The thoracic duct, azygos vein, ipsilateral pleura, and all periesophageal tissue in the posterior mediastinum were dissected en bloc. The specimen included the lower and middle mediastinal, subcarinal, and right-sided paratracheal lymph nodes (dissected en bloc). The aortapulmonary-window nodes were dissected separately.-Through a midline laparotomy, the paracardial, lesser curvature, left-gastric-artery (along with lesser curvature), celiac trunk, common-hepatic-artery, and splenic-artery nodes were dissected, and a gastric tube was constructed. The cervical phase of the transthoracic procedure was identical to the transhiatal procedure, but a left-sided approach was used.C.

11 Type II/III Phase III trial in Japan (JCOG 9502) Type II/III tumour Left thoracoabdominal Vs transhiatal extended total gastrectomyTotal gastrectomy with D2 Lymphadenectomy (including splenectomy) + para-aortic node dissection (lateral to aorta and above the left renal vein)TH: periesophageal lymph node dissectionLTA: mediastinal nodal dissectionSasako M, et al; Japan Clinical Oncology Group (JCOG9502) (2006) Left thoracoabdominal approach versus abdominal-transhiatal approach for gastric cancer of the cardia or subcardia: a randomised controlled trial.

12 Type II/IIITranshiatal extended total gastrectomy was superior to thoracoabdominal approach in treating type II/III tumour.Sasako M, et al; Japan Clinical Oncology Group (JCOG9502) (2006) Left thoracoabdominal approach versus abdominal-transhiatal approach for gastric cancer of the cardia or subcardia: a randomised controlled trial.

13 Summary of two major trials Conclusions:Type I tumour: Transthoracic en bloc esophagectomy including mediastinal lymphadenectomy.Type II/III: Transhiatal extended total gastrectomy.

15 Locally advanced tumour T3/4, node-positive diseaseFailure of surgery to obtain locoregional control and early systemic dissemination of disease5-year survival after potentially curative resection is only up to 20%How about neoadjuvant therapy?Hulscher JBF, van Sandick JW, de Boer AGEM, et al.: Extended transthoracic resection compared with limited transhiatal resection for adenocarcinoma of the esophagus.

16 Neoadjuvent therapy Review on phase III clinical trials (1991-2011) Conclusion: neoadjuvant chemotherapy or CRT improves survivalBranislav et al.: Optimal therapeutic strategies for resectable oesophageal or oesophagogastric junction cancer. Drugs 2011:71 (5):
17 SummarySiewert classification of OGJ tumour bears a good correlation with lymphatic spread.Type I: Transthoracic en bloc esophagectomy including mediastinal lymphadenectomy.Type II/III: Transhiatal extended total gastrectomy.Proximal gastrectomy can be a feasible option for Type II.Results of neoadjuvant therapy in managing locally advanced cancer is promising and shown to improve survival.
