Abstract

Authors describe a new application of intraoperative endoscopic examination. At operation it is difficult to define the border of a superficial esophageal cancer. The female patient aged 69 years was operated on because of squamous cell cancer. During the operation endoscopic examination was done and the esophageal mucosa was stained with 1% toluidine blue solution. The squamous cancer stained blue. The upper border ot the tumour was determined so that the esophageal wall was palpated from the outside with a probe and the same time the manipulation was being watched on the monitor of the videoendoscope. Subtotal esophagectomy and lymphadenectomy were performed. Authors claim that by the intraoperative use of endoscopic staining the risk recurrence in an anastomosis may be diminished and leaving behind of multifocal carcinoma may be eliminated.
