Abstract

Postoperative complications are still responsible for many deaths in esophageal cancer surgery. In the last 4 years, we achieved a great reduction of the postoperative mortality rate at 3 months after surgical treatment while also achieving satisfactory palliation of dysphagia in 100% of our patients.
