Esophageal cancer (EC) frequently presents with advanced stages and is associated with high recurrence rates after esophagectomy. The value of an extended lymph node dissection (ELND) remains unclear in this setting. An EC data set was created from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End-Results 1973–2003 database. Relationships between the number of lymph nodes (LNs) examined and overall survival (OS) were analyzed. From a cohort of 40,129 EC patients, 5,620 individuals were selected. The… CONTINUE READING
