Abstract
ABSTRACT
The article presents information on abstracts related to oesophagus. An abstract presents information on Raman spectroscopy. Researchers have demonstrated the potential of Raman spectroscopy for the identification and classification of malignant changes in oesophagus. However, there is no clear recognition of the biochemical changes that distinguish between the different stages of malignant progression. The aim is to understand these changes through Raman mapping studies. Roman spectroscopy was used to analyse 87 oesophageol biopsies from 44 patients. Spectral results were correlated with the consensus opinion of three pathologists using multivariate statistical analysis.

    Background: Postoperative dysphagia after laparoscopic antireflux surgery usually is transient and resolves within weeks after surgery. Persistent dysphagia develops in a small percentage of patients after surgery. There still is debate about whether postoperative dysphagia is caused by the type...

    Diverticula in the middle and lower thirds of the esophagus are a rare disorder, frequently associated with esophageal motility disturbances. For symptomatic patients transthoracic diverticulectomy with or without Heller's myotomy is recommended. Here we report two cases of symptomatic...

    Short esophagus is a common cause of failure of antireflux surgery. Minimally invasive intervention for short esophagus is technically difficult. Reliable predictors of short esophagus would allow appropriate referral and better outcomes. The aim of this study is to investigate the preoperative...

    The indications for postoperative ventilation and paralysis with neck flexion after repair of oesophageal atresia (OA) have been controversial, mainly because of a paucity of information on oesophageal compliance and the influence of posture on anastomotic tension. This study using a pig model...

    After a meal there exists a pocket of unbuffered highly acidic gastric juice at the gastro-oesophageal (GO) junction. Authors observed that this post prandial acid pocket extended into the distal oesophagus. After the high fat meal there is proximal migration of the acid pocket resulting in a...
