OBJECTIVE Lymph node metastasis in carcinoma of the esophagus and the gastro-esophageal junction is often underestimated by clinical staging. It is the aim of this study to provide support to the fact that three-field lymphadenectomy leads to a better pathological staging also in adenocarcinoma. METHODS The pattern of lymph node metastasis in adenocarcinoma of the gastro-esophageal junction (GEJ) and the distal esophagus was charted in a prospective way by using a database. An analysis was… CONTINUE READING
