Abstract

In the literature the choice of surgical treatment for cardia carcinomas is as controversial as the definition of this term. Some authors favor total esophagogas-trectomy [4, 12], others stress the necessity of a total gastrectomy [5, 7], and still others only perform a limited regional resection of the cardia [5,8]. One reason for this therapeutic uncertainty is a leak of data on results that can be achieved by different regimens. On the other hand, the term “cardia carcinoma” is poorly defined in the literature [1, 5–8]. As long as different types of tumors are comprised under this term, the results will be difficult to compare and no clear therapeutic guidelines can be expected.
