A Risk Model for Esophagectomy Using Data of 5354 Patients Included in a Japanese Nationwide Web-Based Database
A risk model of mortality associated with esophagectomy in Japan was developed using variables identified in the ACS NSQIP program. 30-day and overall surgical mortality rates were 1.2% and 3.4%, and the morbidity rate was 42%. Morbidity was higher after minimally invasive esophagectomy. Mortality was related to difficulty with ADLs, recent smoking, greater preoperative weight loss, male sex, and COPD.
