This study aimed to evaluate the impact of standardized surveillance by a specialized center after resection on survival. Data of 587 patients were analyzed who underwent curative surgery for esophagogastric adenocarcinoma in our institution. Based on their postoperative surveillance, patients were assigned to either standardized follow-up (SFU) by the… CONTINUE READING
