Abstract

The objective of surgical management of cancer of the esophagus is twofold: To perform radical resection of the tumor and to restore effective gastric continuity. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the short- and long-term progress of patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus submitted to this procedure, regarding the importance of lymphadenectomy on long-term survival.
