Abstract

Background: The management of esophageal carcinoma is changing but before the introduction of

trend and to examine survival in a total population cohort 1985-94.

survivors: 1/51 v. 7/58 (p<0.05). Operative mortality fell from 12% to 6.9 % in the later period (N.S.) and survival

17.2%.

but the present cohort shows a slight improvement with more selective surgery and this may serve as a benchmark against

which modern multidisciplinary management might be compared.
