    Abstract:

    Additional cervical lymphadenectomy did not lead to added survival benefit when compared with modern 2-FL in patients with thoracic oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma. Recurrence was similar in patients undergoing 3-FL and modern 2-FL. 3-FL resulted in more postoperative complications.
