BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE As one of the principal causes of gene inactivation, aberrant hypermethylation in the promoter of cancer-related genes has attracted more and more attention. However, such studies on esophageal cancer are still limited. This study was to investigate the association between aberrant hypermethylation of MGMT gene and clinical(More)
OBJECTIVE To summarize the surgical effect and clinical application value of esophagectomy with extended 2-field lymph node dissection for patients with esophageal carcinoma. METHODS From June 1987 to December 2008, 1690 patients with esophageal cancer underwent esophagectomy with extended 2-field (thoracic and abdominal) dissection of lymph nodes.(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the incidence of lymph node metastasis (LNM) in the right para-tracheal triangle (RPT) of esophageal carcinoma patients and the technique of dissection. METHODS On the top of double mediastinal and abdominal lymphadenectomy, 333 esophageal carcinoma patients received RPT lymphadenectomy through the right pleural apical approach(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE Regional lymph node metastasis plays an important role in the prognosis of esophageal carcinoma. However, the range of lymph node dissection is still controversial. This study was to investigate the regulations of lymph node metastasis of thoracic esophageal carcinoma in the mediastinum and upper abdomen, and explore the rational(More)
