Abstract

Adenocarcinoma of the esophagus is of special importance because it has been showing an increasing frequency, especially in Europe and North America [1]. This tumor is mostly attributed to a malignant degeneration of the columnar cell-lined lower esophagus. The results of surgical treatment of adenocarcinoma of the esophagus were prospectively analyzed and are reported in comparison to the long-term results after resection of squamous cell cancer of the esophagus, cardia cancer, and subcardial carcinomas.
