30-day and 90-day mortality rates were compared using information from the National Cancer Data Base 2007-2011.  Among nearly 16,000 esophagectomies, the 30-day mortality rate was 4.2% and the 90-day rate was 8.9%.  90-day mortality was uniquely associated with tumor location, tumor stage, and receipt of neoadjuvant therapy.
