Abstract

When we treat patients with superficial esophageal carcinoma where the infiltration is limited to the mucosa or the submucosa, there are two approaches that we use. One is the extended resection of the esophagus and the other is resection of the lymph nodes around the neck, from the thoracic cavity, and from the abdominal cavity. A variety of combination therapies are then applied. However, if we expect a curative operation, we perform a minimally invasive operation such as an endoscopic mucosectomy.
