A Study of the Clinicopathological Effects of Chemotherapy for Human Esophageal Carcinoma
The prognosis of esophageal carcinoma is not good in spite of technical advances in both surgery and radiation therapy [1, 2]. Our total resections of epidermoid carcinoma of the esophagus consist of 201 cases in the past 10 years, though the survival rate, among 102 cases after 5 years, is only 12%. Ninety percent of the patients who were admitted to us were in the advanced stages of the disease, so this is one of the reasons why esophageal carcinoma has such a poor prognosis, compared with other carcinomas of the digestive organs.
