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.
Esophageal cancer is one of the deadliest cancers worldwide. Esophagectomy with lymphadenectomy is regarded as the only curative option for resectable esophageal cancer, but it is associated with high...
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.
Evidence suggests that minimally invasive esophagectomy has several advantages with regard to short-term outcomes, compared to open esophagectomy in esophageal cancer patients. However, the impact of ...
To elucidate the clinical value of mean corpuscular volume (MCV) for prognostic prediction in patients with esophageal cancer who underwent radical esophagectomy.
Tumors or cancer of the ESOPHAGUS.
A pathological condition characterized by the presence of a number of ESOPHAGEAL DIVERTICULA in the ESOPHAGUS.
Circular innermost layer of the ESOPHAGUS wall that mediates esophageal PERISTALSIS which pushes ingested food bolus toward the stomach.
Excision of part (partial) or all (total) of the esophagus. (Dorland, 28th ed)
Irradiation of one half or both halves of the body in the treatment of disseminated cancer or widespread metastases. It is used to treat diffuse metastases in one session as opposed to multiple fields over an extended period. The more frequent treatment modalities are upper hemibody irradiation (UHBI) or lower hemibody irradiation (LHBI). Less common is mid-body irradiation (MBI). In the treatment of both halves of the body sequentially, hemibody irradiation permits radiotherapy of the whole body with larger doses of radiation than could be accomplished with WHOLE-BODY IRRADIATION. It is sometimes called "systemic" hemibody irradiation with reference to its use in widespread cancer or metastases. (P. Rubin et al. Cancer, Vol 55, p2210, 1985)
