Abstract

One of the greatest concerns among surgeons has been to improve the operative mortality rate after radical operation for carcinoma of the esophagus. In our department, we have performed aggressive lymph node dissection of the upper mediastinum since 1980. In the present study, we evaluated this dissection and also report the results of EFP (etoposide, 5-FU, and cisplatin) therapy in the prevention of hematogenous recurrence.
