Prognostic analysis of salvage esophagectomy after definitive chemoradiotherapy for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma: The importance of lymphadenectomy
Pts undergoing salvage esophagectomy after definitive chemoradiotherapy were evaluated for perdictors of survival. 5-year survival was 30%, which was related to tumor recurrence rather than residual tumor, complete resection, N status, M status, and dissection of more than 15 nodes. Additional neck dissection was not found to provide additional benefit.
