Abstract

Surgery is the single most effective therapeutic approach to esophageal cancer. However, the long-term prognosis has not changed significantly over the past 2 decades despite the increased resectability rates and the developments of technique [2, 5]. This is mainly due to the high recurrence rate. Therefore, a better understanding of the natural history of this tumor and of pitfalls of surgery is of primary importance for a better planning of therapy.
