Helping Patients with Esophageal Cancer

 

Lecture Description

Esophageal cancer treatments have evolved greatly over the last few decades. Depending on depth of invasion, endoscopic therapies are now part of the treatment algorithm. We will follow two cases from diagnosis to treatment to highlight therapeutic options and common side effects and complications.

Lecture Objectives:
  • Recognize the common complications and side effects associated with esophagectomy
  • Recognize the common complications and side effects associated with cryotherapy and RFA
  • Describe how to treat the most common post treatment symptoms
