Abstract

With the introduction of cisplatin (CDDP) and new types of combination chemotherapy for the treatment of esophageal carcinoma, the use of adjuvant therapy for this disease has attracted increasing attention [1]. In this study, the effects of adjuvant chemotherapy and adjuvant radiotherapy on patients who underwent esophagectomy with collo-thoraco-abdominal lymph node dissection were investigated retrospectively.
