Abstract. The results of endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS), used preoperatively in 74 endoscopically evaluable patients, were compared with the histopathology after subsequent total esophagectomy with radical lymphadenectomy involving a three-field dissection of the lower cervical, mediastinal, and abdominal nodes. Patients with obstruction to endoscopy were excluded from this study. Overall accuracy, specificity, and sensitivity were 87%, 90%, and 37%, respectively. EUS has an accuracy of more… CONTINUE READING
