Abstract

Esophageal cancer is a significant source of major mortality worldwide and is increasing dramatically in incidence. Without treatment this disease leads rapidly to death, but intervention also carries significant risk, so a carefully tailored approach must be used to maximize oncological efficacy while minimizing the negative consequences of intervention. Careful patient selection based on histologic and anatomic staging, consideration of each patient's clinical variables, appropriately timing chemo- and radiation therapy, and minimizing the morbidity of surgical intervention may significantly improve a patient's chances of surviving this disease, but each must be carefully orchestrated with a tailored approach to treatment. This review will serve as a guide to tailoring surgery for esophageal cancer.
