Adenocarcinoma of Gastroesophageal Junction Joint Hospital Surgical Grand Round 8 th November, 2014 Prepared by Dr. Rain So Kwong Wah Hospita l
Outline of Presentation Definitions Classification of adenocarcinoma of OGJ Surgical approach Neoadjuvant therapy in locally advanced disease
Definitions Gastric cardia Zone of the stomach adjacent to the orifice of the tubular esophagus OGJ Endoscopically: The proximal margin of longitudinal gastric mucosal folds Anatomically: At the level of the angle of His The squamocolumnar junction (Z-line) The visible line formed by the juxtaposition of squamous and columnar epithelia, 3-10mm proximal to OGJ
Classification of OGJ tumour Described by Dr. Siewert OGJ 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
Classification 1cm to 5cm above OGJ 1cm above to 2 cm below OGJ 2cm to 5cm below OGJ
Surgical treatment Primary Aim: R0 resection Complete resection of primary tumour Type I: Intramural spread, multiple satellite tumours Reported incidence of residual tumour at the resection margin: 5- 35%* Adequate lymphadenectomy Stipa S, Di Giorgio A, Ferri M.

Topic to be discussed Optimal proximal resection and surgical approach in esophagectomy for type I Surgical approach for Type II/III Optimal lymph node dissection in type II/III
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 36.3 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. Mariette, et al (2003), Extent of oesophageal resection for adenocarcinoma of the oesophagogastric junction, EJSO 2003; 29: 588–593
Type I Phase III trial in Netherlands (Dutch trial) Right thoracic approach Vs Transhiatal esophagectomy in type I More 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) C.

Type II/III Phase III trial in Japan (JCOG 9502) Type II/III tumour Left thoracoabdominal Vs transhiatal extended total gastrectomy Total gastrectomy with D2 Lymphadenectomy (including splenectomy) + para-aortic node dissection (lateral to aorta and above the left renal vein) TH: periesophageal lymph node dissection LTA: mediastinal nodal dissection 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. Lancet Oncol 7:644–651
Type II/III 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. Lancet Oncol 7:644–651 Transhiatal extended total gastrectomy was superior to thoracoabdominal approach in treating type II/III tumour.
Summary of two major trials Conclusions: Type I tumour: Transthoracic en bloc esophagectomy including mediastinal lymphadenectomy. Type II/III: Transhiatal extended total gastrectomy.
Type II/III IEBLD=index of estimated benefit of LN dissection Frequency (+LNmet) x 5-year survival rate of pts with +LNs Type II: IEBLD =0 in distal perigastric LNs Proximal gastrectomy can be a feasible option for type II tumour Type III: IEBLD = in 4b, 4d, 5 Total gastrectomy Difference in lymph node dissection?

Locally advanced tumour T3/4, node-positive disease Failure of surgery to obtain locoregional control and early systemic dissemination of disease 5-year survival after potentially curative resection is only up to 20% Hulscher JBF, van Sandick JW, de Boer AGEM, et al.: Extended transthoracic resection compared with limited transhiatal resection for adenocarcinoma of the esophagus.

N Engl J Med 1998, 339:1979–1984. How about neoadjuvant therapy?
Neoadjuvent therapy Branislav et al.: Optimal therapeutic strategies for resectable oesophageal or oesophagogastric junction cancer. Drugs 2011:71 (5): Review on phase III clinical trials ( ) Conclusion: neoadjuvant chemotherapy or CRT improves survival
Summary Siewert 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.
