Abstract

The relapse rate of esophageal cancer is high, especially at the cervical and supra-clavicular nodes [1]. This makes it difficult to hope for an improvement of long-term survival of the patient. In order to have curative operation, we initiated extensive three-field lymph node dissection, including the lymph nodes in the neck, mediastinum, and abdomen [2].
