Resumen

My colleagues and I present 2 cases of hemorrhagic postesophagectomy gastritis after chemoradiotherapy for esophageal cancer. On the basis of the location of the gastritis (lesser curve and midstomach) and the classic radiation injury appearance, radiation damage was believed to be the cause. In both patients, hyperbaric oxygen therapy rapidly arrested bleeding. This is the first description in which hyperbaric oxygen therapy was used to treat hemorrhagic postesophagectomy gastritis.
