Esophago Gastric Surgery, often abbreviated as EGS, is a major surgery that involves removing a part of the esophagus (the tube that connects your mouth to your stomach) and then reconstructing the digestive system using part of your stomach. This surgery is often performed to treat conditions such as esophageal cancer, severe acid reflux, and certain types of esophageal strictures.

When is Esophago Gastric Surgery recommended?

EGS is a major surgery and is typically considered only when other treatment options have failed or are not appropriate. Some of the conditions that may necessitate EGS include:

  • Esophageal cancer: This is the most common reason for EGS. The surgery may be performed to remove the cancerous tissue and create a new pathway for food to travel from the mouth to the stomach.

  • Severe acid reflux (GERD): When GERD is not controlled by medication or other treatments, EGS may be recommended to prevent complications such as esophageal strictures and Barrett's esophagus.

  • Esophageal strictures: These are narrowings of the esophagus that can make it difficult to swallow. EGS can be used to widen the esophagus and improve swallowing function.

  • Achalasia: This is a rare condition that affects the muscles in the esophagus, making it difficult to relax and allow food to pass into the stomach. EGS can be used to treat achalasia by creating a new opening between the esophagus and the stomach.

What are the different types of Esophago Gastric Surgery procedures?

There are two main types of EGS procedures:

  • Transthoracic esophagectomy: This procedure involves making an incision in the chest to access the esophagus. This is the traditional approach to EGS and is typically used for more complex cases.

  • Minimally invasive esophagectomy: This procedure uses laparoscopic or robotic surgery to access the esophagus through small incisions. This approach is associated with less pain and faster recovery times than open surgery.

What are the benefits of EGS?

EGS can offer several benefits for patients with conditions affecting the esophagus, including:

  • Improved ability to swallow: EGS can significantly improve swallowing function, making it easier to eat and drink.

  • Reduced pain and discomfort: EGS can help to relieve pain and discomfort caused by conditions such as severe acid reflux and esophageal strictures.

  • Increased life expectancy: EGS can be a life-saving surgery for patients with esophageal cancer.

  • Improved quality of life: EGS can significantly improve the quality of life for patients by allowing them to eat and drink normally and participate in activities that they may have previously avoided due to their condition.

Esophago Gastric Surgery involves surgical procedures to treat conditions affecting the esophagus and stomach, such as esophageal cancer, stomach cancer, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and severe ulcers.
Conditions that may require Esophago Gastric Surgery include esophageal cancer, gastric (stomach) cancer, Barrett's esophagus, severe GERD, esophageal strictures, achalasia, and large or complicated hiatal hernias.
Preparation includes consultations with your surgeon and anesthesiologist, pre-operative tests (such as blood tests and imaging), fasting before surgery, and possibly adjusting current medications. Specific instructions will be provided by your healthcare team.
Recovery involves a hospital stay where you'll be monitored closely, followed by a gradual return to normal activities. Pain management, dietary changes, and follow-up appointments are essential parts of the recovery process. Full recovery can take several weeks to months.
Risks include infection, bleeding, blood clots, leakage from the surgical connections, strictures (narrowing of the esophagus), and complications related to anesthesia. Discussing these risks with your surgeon is important to understand the specific risks for your situation.
