General and Digestive Surgery

We present a retrospective study of 68 esophageal cancer patients treated with surgery between 1975 and 1991. Results showed a resectability of 73.5% with the most frequent surgical approach being a Lewis esophagectomy. The mean hospitalization time was 24.7 days with a postoperative mortality of 7.3%.

Other complications included anastomotic leakage, wound infection, sepsis and pulmonary disorders. Over-all survival at 3 years was 17.3%, reaching 24% in resected patients. Survival according to lymph node involvement was 13.4% for lymph node positive patients and 34.5% for node negative patients. According to histopathologic stage, survival rates were 34.6% and 8.59% for early and advanced tumor respectively, the difference being statistically significant using the Mantel-Haenszel test.
