Abstract

With the conventional methods of diagnosis of esophageal cancer, it is very difficult to know preoperatively whether or not the lesion is accompanied by lymph node involvement, which aggravates the prognosis. However, if a technique were available making it feasible to acquire information regarding the malignant potential from biopsy material, this would certainly help us to prescribe adequate treatment and assess the prognosis.
