Because of the major developments in the treatment of esophageal cancer in recent decades, the authors of this study conducted it at a tertiary referral center to determine if long- and short-term survival rates had improved for patients who underwent esophagectomy from 1993 to 2018. The study showed that over the last twenty-five years, clinical outcomes and overall survival rates have improved in esophagectomy patients at this center.
