Esophageal cancer is the eighth most common cancer around the world, with more than 450000 new cases per year. Esophagectomy with radical lymphadenectomy (2-field lymphadenectomy) is the m...
The purpose of this study is 1. To compare the effects of the three types of thoracic esophageal cancer lymphadenectomy on the staging and prognosis of resectable esophageal cancer...
Surgery is the standard treatment for esophageal (food pipe) cancer. Esophageal cancer is known to spread to the lymph nodes (glands) adjacent to the esophagus. The extent of lymph nodes t...
The purpose of the study was to test a null hypothesis that a combined modality treatment of esophageal cancer with neoadjuvant chemotherapy or chemoradiotherapy is equivalent to surgery a...
Multi-Center Prospective Randomized Trial Comparing Standard Esophagectomy Against Chemo-Radiotherapy for Treatment of Squamous Esophageal Cancer – Early Results From the Chinese University Research Group for Esophageal Cancer (CURE)
A multicenter randomized comparison of primary esophagectomy against definitive chemoradiotherapy for the treatment of squamous esophageal cancer.
A suitable treatment strategy for esophageal cancer after definitive chemoradiotherapy for T4 cases has not been established and remains unclear. This study aimed to clarify the independent prognostic...
Open esophagectomy (OE) with radical lymphadenectomy is known as one of the most invasive digestive surgeries with the high rate of complications. Minimally invasive esophagectomy (MIE) has developed ...
Given the potential morbidity of esophagectomy, patients may pursue other treatments. We sought to determine predictors and outcomes of esophageal cancer (EC) patients who refused esophagectomy.
The standard curative treatment for patients with esophageal cancer is perioperative chemotherapy or preoperative chemoradiotherapy followed by open transthoracic esophagectomy (OTE). Robot-assisted m...
We investigated the operative outcomes of thoracoscopic esophagectomy (TE) in the prone position, using the concept of total meso-esophageal excision for esophageal cancer.
Tumors or cancer of the ESOPHAGUS.
A pathological condition characterized by the presence of a number of ESOPHAGEAL DIVERTICULA in the ESOPHAGUS.
