Tumor volume can be calculated from CT scans by combining adjacent measured tumor areas on each 1-cm slice. The accuracy of this method is similar to results obtained from resected tumor weight and water displacement measurements. Complications of Therapy: A gastroesophageal anastomotic leak is not uncommon after cancer resection. Most of these leaks are detected by a barium study shortly after surgery, and most smaller ones are managed medically and close spontaneously. Larger ones or those not healing with conservative therapy are amenable to esophageal stenting.
Extensive mediastinal ﬁbrosis does lead to esophageal stricture. Generally these strictures have a smooth appearance and tapering margins. Self-expanding stents have been helpful in relieving acute dysphagia in these patients. Tumors Nonneoplastic Sebaceous Glands Normally sebaceous glands do not exist in the esophagus, although ectopic sebaceous glands have been described. They vary in size; some appear as irregular, lobulated nodules, while a rare patient has multiple rounded polyps arranged in rows.
Incomplete upper esophageal sphincter relaxation is associated with achalasia—a ﬁnding rare in most other motility disorders. In general, the primary abnormality in achalasia is incomplete relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter, although achalasia patients with a normal lower esophageal sphincter relaxation have been described. Dilation and aperistalsis of the more proximal esophagus develop subsequently. For some reason esophageal bezoars are uncommon in achalasia. Pathologically, patients with achalasia have few or no ganglion cells, but show myenteric inﬂammation, neural ﬁbrosis, and often a ganglionitis (101); the number of remaining ganglion cells is inversely related to degree of myenteric ﬁbrosis.
