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.
