Abstract

Objective: To investigate trends in results of esophagectomies to treat esophageal cancer at a single high-volume institution during the past 25 years. Design and Setting: Retrospective cohort study in a university tertiary referral center. Patients with cancer of the thoracic esophagus or esophagogastric junction seen from 1980 through 2004 were included (N = 3493). Three time periods were defined: 1980-1987,1988-1995, and 1 996-2004. Main Outcome Measures : Clinical presentation, tumor characteristics, and morbidity, mortality, and survival rates among patients with esophageal cancer undergoing esophagectomy. Results: The ratio of squamous cell carcinoma to adenocarcinoma decreased from 3.3 to 1.7 (P
