BACKGROUND Oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is a common type of cancer in China. The knowledge of its pattern of lymphatic metastasis would be of clinical value for surgical and radiation oncologists to treat this disease. MATERIAL AND METHODS A large series of 1850 thoracic oesophageal SCC was retrospectively analysed after extended oesophagectomy with three-field lymphadenectomy (3FL). Specimens were assessed for pattern of lymphatic spread. RESULT Of the 1850 patients, 1081 (58… Expand
Pattern of lymphatic spread in thoracic esophageal squamous cell carcinoma: A single-institution experience.
TLDR
Metastases were more frequent in the abdomen than in the neck, and certain factors, such as tumor location, depth of tumor invasion, lymphovascular invasion, and paratracheal lymph node involvement, might be helpful in determining the need to perform cervical lymphadenectomy in individual patients. Expand
Patterns of lymph node metastasis and survival for upper esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.
TLDR
Recurrent laryngeal lymph node chains are those most commonly affected by nodal metastasis, and the prevalence of cervical lymph node involvement is high, at more than 40%. Expand
Patterns and rates of abdominal lymphatic metastasis following esophageal carcinoma
TLDR
This study determined that stations 16a1 and 16a2 of the para-aortic, truncus coeliacus, posterior surface of the pancreatic head, and arteria hepatica communis lymph nodes were the preferred sites for abdominal LN metastasis, thus defining target areas for postoperative radiotherapy. Expand

TLDR
Upper TE-SCC with multiple involved nodes at any site was associated with a high rate of cervical node metastasis, providing critical information for clinical decision-making regarding the extent of nodal dissection or the size of radiation fields in definitive radiotherapy. Expand
Proposed modifications of supraclavicular lymph node metastasis in the esophageal squamous cell carcinoma staging system for improved survival stratification
TLDR
Based on the data from the single center, SCLNs should be reclassified as regional lymph nodes in thoracic ESCC for better stratification of overall survival. Expand
Prognostic significance of solitary lymph node metastasis in patients with squamous cell carcinoma of middle thoracic esophagus
TLDR
For patients with middle thoracic esophageal squamous cell carcinoma, solitary lymph node metastasis has a negative impact on survival compared with N0 disease; skip metastasis, however, is comparable to N0 diseases in predicting prognosis. Expand
Distribution of Lymph Node Metastases in Esophageal Carcinoma Patients Undergoing Upfront Surgery: A Systematic Review
TLDR
It is found that both squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma metastasize to cervical, thoracic, and abdominal lymph node stations, regardless of the primary tumor location. Expand
Nodal Skip Metastasis is not a Predictor of Survival in Thoracic Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma
TLDR
NSM is common in thoracic ESCC, especially in patients with tumors located in the middle and lower third of the esophagus, however, the presence of NSM did not predict prognosis. Expand
Adequate lymphadenectomy in patients with oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma: resecting the minimal number of lymph node stations.
TLDR
The minimum number of lymph node (LN) stations to be resected in patients with oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) was defined to be at least seven. Expand

The pattern of lymphatic metastases in superficial squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus.
TLDR
It is suggested that subcarinal nodes might not need to be sampled or dissected in patients with superficial carcinoma of the thoracic esophagus, and esophagectomy without thoracotomy might be acceptable in Mt and Lt patients with shallow squamous cell carcinomas. Expand
Reflections on three field lymphadenectomy in carcinoma of the esophagus and gastroesophageal junction.
TLDR
Improved accuracy of staging, prolonged disease-free survival and potential increased cure rate are confirmed by the experience of an extensive three field lymphadenectomy. Expand
Three-Field Lymph Node Dissection for Squamous Cell and Adenocarcinoma of the Esophagus
TLDR
Esophagectomy with three-field lymph node dissection can be performed with a low mortality and reasonable morbidity, and an overall 5-year survival rate of 51% suggests a true survival benefit beyond that achieved solely on the basis of stage migration. Expand
Evaluation of prognosis of squamous cell carcinoma of the oesophagus by endoscopic ultrasonography.
TLDR
Measurement of EUS area of the tumour is reliable for quantification of the malignant tumour and prediction of prognosis in patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the oesophagus. Expand
Radical Lymph Node Dissection for Cancer of the Thoracic Esophagus
TLDR
The role of radical lymph node dissection in cancer of the thoracic esophagus was evaluated and it was concluded that survival rate was significantly better in patients with extensive three-field dissection. Expand
Long‐Term Results of Subtotal Esophagectomy with Three‐Field Lymphadenectomy for Carcinoma of the Thoracic Esophagus
TLDR
Three-field lymphadenectomy, including especially the removal of bilateral recurrent nerve nodes in the cervical region, is essential for improving the survival of patients with carcinoma of the upper two thirds of the thoracic esophagus. Expand

TLDR
Prevalence and pattern of lymphatic spread as well as long-term prognosis differ markedly between early esophageal squamous cell and adenocarcinoma. Expand

TLDR
It can be concluded that in experienced hands surgery today offers the best chances for optimal staging, potential cure, and prolonged high-quality palliation. Expand
Analysis of clinicopathological characteristics for 5406 cases of esophageal neoplasm
TLDR
The most of ENs are found in middle segment, and squamous carcinoma is absolute major EN, and the followings are adeno-squamous carcinomas, small cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma and carcinosarcoma. Expand
Impact of Solitary Involved Lymph Node on Outcome in Localized Cancer of the Esophagus and Esophagogastric Junction
TLDR
The presence of a solitary involved lymph node has a negative impact on survival compared with node-negative disease, but it is associated with significantly improved overall survival comparedwith all other nodal groups. Expand
