Late results of operative removal of esophageal cancer with special reference to blunt dissection

, : Late results of operative removal of esophageal cancer with special reference to blunt dissection. Gan No Rinsho. Japan Journal of Cancer Clinics 32(15): 1909-1917

From 1973 to 1985, 185 patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus were admitted. For such advanced cases as those with penetration into the adventitia, multidisciplinary treatment with bypass surgery, irradiation, hyperthermia and immunochemotherapy was preferably performed. For those with limited invasion not beyond the adventitia, esophagectomy was performed as a first choice. For carcinoma of the lower thoracic and abdominal esophagus, blunt dissection of the thoracic esophagus was undertaken associated with reconstruction of the alimentary tract using a gastric tube via the posterior mediastinum. Of the 185 patients 90 (48.6%) underwent esophagectomy and 77 (41.6%) bypass surgery. Five-year survival rates after operative removal were 69.2% in stage 0, 40.1% in stages I + II, 38.9% in stage III, 4.5% in stage IV and 30.4% overall.
