    The October-November issue of Diseases of the Esophagus contains the first three articles dedicated to the analysis of the data gathered by the Worldwide Esophageal Cancer Collaboration (WECC) lead by Prof. Thomas Rice, that will form the basis for the new (8th) edition of the UICC- AJC TNM classification. 

    Data from more than 22,000 patients with staged esophageal cancer from 33 institutions in six continents were analyzed. Each institution submitted data using variables with standard definitions: demographics, comorbidities, clinical cancer categories, and all causes mortalities from the first management decision. Clinical data, pathological data, and pathological data in patients that received neoadjuvant chemo or chemoradiotherapy were separately addressed. One of the most relevant finding of this analysis is the need for a separate classification for pathological stage in patients operated with or without neoadjuvant therapy.

    Traditionally we used to measure the LES generated pressure, either during resting or at swallowing, by means of water perfused catheter or solid state sensors. With modern High Resolution Manometry, the LES generated pressures are measured in several points few mm apart. The function of LES is inferred by calculating its pressure and the length on whom this pressure is exerted and how it alters after swallowing.

    Two articles in the current issue of Diseases of the Esophagus deal with a new tool (Endoflip) that allows to calculate the force needed to open the LES (LES distensibility). In the first, A. Ilczyszyn, K. Hamaoui, J. Cartwright and A. Botha,  discuss the clinical utility of these measurements to optimize the myotomy in achalasia patients (Intraoperative distensibility measurement during laparoscopic Heller's myotomy for achalasia may reduce the myotomy length without compromising patient outcome, pages 455–462) and in the second, C. Lottrup, B. P. McMahon, P. Ejstrud, M. A. Ostapiuk, P. Funch-Jensen and A. M. Drewes present their finding on LES distensibility in a group of Hiatus hernia, Barretts and  control patients. (Esophagogastric junction distensibility in hiatus hernia, pages 463–471) .
