This single institution retrospective analysis of esophagectomy or gastrectomy for GEJ cancer compared outcomes between groups who did and did not complete recommended 2 cycles of postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy.  Of 110 pts who underwent perioperative chemotherapy, 67% completed postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy.  Completion of 2 cycles or more of postoperative adjuvent chemotherapy was associated with improved survival.
