Management of clinical T2N0 esophageal cancer: A review

Patrick Vining, Thomas J. Birdas

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

While management of locally advanced esophageal cancer has mostly involved multimodality therapy, management of clinical T2N0 patients has been more controversial, primarily as a result of inaccurate clinical staging with existing modalities. This review article examines current literature on this topic and provides recommendations for management of individual patients.
