In 1978, postoperative radiation therapy was suggested to be an additive treatment of carcinoma of the esophagus. In 1987, we began a multicenter trial of patients with epidermoid carcinoma of the middle third or the lower third of the esophagus. Isolated surgical treatment (119 patients) was compared with surgical treatment followed by radiation therapy (102 patients). Randomization was performed according to the results of pathologic examination of all resected lymph nodes. Patients were… Expand
