Endoscopic ultrasound: impact on survival in patients with esophageal cancer.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Esophageal carcinoma is an aggressive malignancy and long-term survival is poor. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is an additional staging modality to assess locoregional extent of this disease. We hypothesized that EUS may improve survival through more effective staging and better optimization of treatment. METHODS We performed a retrospective… (More)
