  Purpose

A neutrophil elastase inhibitor may have effect on suppression of the lung injury after thoransthoracic esophagectomy. The investigators hypothesized that postoperative complication, particularly respiratory complication may be reduced by neutrophil elastase inhibitor after esophagectomy.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Placebo Comparator: Control group
Patients in the control group received saline for 7 days starting at the beginning of surgery
Drug: sivelestat sodium hydrate
saline or sivelestat sodium hydrate intravenously for 7 days starting the beginning of surgery
Other Name: Elaspol
Active Comparator: S group
Patients in the S group received sivelestat sodium hydrate at a dosage 4.8mg/kg/day for 7 days starting at the beginning of surgery
Drug: sivelestat sodium hydrate
saline or sivelestat sodium hydrate intravenously for 7 days starting the beginning of surgery
Other Name: Elaspol

Detailed Description:

The aim of this study was to clarify the usefulness of perioperative administration of sivelestat sodium hydrate, a selective inhibitor of neutrophil elastase in the pulmonary function, systemic inflammatory response, and the postoperative clinical course following video-assisted thoracoscopic esohpagectomy for esophageal cancer.
