Abstract

Despite developments in diagnostic methods, many cases of esophageal cancer are not diagnosed until an advanced stage. Of the cases occurring during a recent period, about 70% were diagnosed at stage III or IV. Many cases of esophageal cancer have recurred after curative resection, and treatment for the recurrence is important. In order to define the important points for improving the prognosis after recurrence, we retrospectively analyzed the cases of recurrence after curative resection for thoracic esophageal cancer.
