This clinical trial is designed to be a multi-center prospective observational study which shall compare the effect of different postoperative home nutrition modes on recent nutritional index (weight/BMI) of patients with esophageal cancer and recent outcomes. Different postoperative home nutrition modes adopted in this study includes oral natural diet, oral nutrition supplement and tube feeding.
STUDY BACKGROUND Esophageal cancer is a common cancer in China and due to its influence on diet intake, patients with esophageal cancer are often combined with nutrition deficiency, which causes relatively high nutrition risk to treatment. Studies conducted by Martin et al showed that the degree of body weight loss in patients with malignancy is related to BMI level and prognosis. The patients with severe body weight loss and low BMI have poor prognosis, especially for patients with esophageal cancer.
At present, perioperative nutrition support for patients with esophageal cancer has been recognized and has been recommended as routine in 2017 NCCN guideline. How to implement good home nutrition within one month after patient discharge and recover nutrition index as soon as possible has become a focus for esophageal surgeon.
Many clinical trials have already investigated enteral nutrition support approach during anti-cancer treatment period in patients with malignancy. However, only a few clinical trials are good designed. Therefore the investigators hope to via this multi-center prospective observational study to provide evidence for this question.
1. To explore the relationship between postoperative home nutrition support treatment approach and nutritional status of patients with esophageal cancer;
2. To explore the relationship between postoperative home nutrition support treatment approach and recent prognosis in patients with esophageal cancer;
3. To promote the standardized application of postoperative home nutrition support treatment for patients with esophageal cancer.\
Included patients shall be divided into three groups according to the treatment plan of all centers, including oral natural diet, oral nutrition supplement and tube feeding. As for patients in oral natural diet group, the patients shall receive oral natural diet. As for patients in oral nutrition supplement group, in addition to oral natural die, the participants shall receive oral enteral supplement providing 750-1500kcal/d. As for patients in tube feeding group, in addition to oral natural die, the participants shall receive tube feeding enteral supplement providing 750-1500kcal/d.
All the included patients shall be followed up weekly within 1-3 weeks after discharge via telephone, at Day 30 after discharge and at Day 90 after discharge to assess the effectiveness and safety of different home nutrition supplement approaches.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 600 patients will be accrued for this study.

The administering of nutrients for assimilation and utilization by a patient who cannot maintain adequate nutrition by enteral feeding alone. Nutrients are administered by a route other than the alimentary canal (e.g., intravenously, subcutaneously).
The at-home administering of nutrients for assimilation and utilization by a patient who cannot maintain adequate nutrition by enteral feeding alone. Nutrients are administered via a route other than the alimentary canal (e.g., intravenously, subcutaneously).
Evaluation and measurement of nutritional variables in order to assess the level of nutrition or the NUTRITIONAL STATUS of the individual. NUTRITION SURVEYS may be used in making the assessment.
