Abstract

Authors have performed 266 one-stage resections and 6 reversed two-stage operations for the treatment of esophageal cancer during a 10-year-period. In six cases first a substernal bypass with colon or stomach was carried out while the tumourous esophagus was removed only 3-4 weeks later from a right thoracic approach. All six patients recovered. The reverse two-stage operation for esophageal cancer can be suggested with rare indications (pulmonary abscess, previous abdominal operations, severe malnutrition, etc.) and it is only justified when the advantage gained by increased operability and decreased morbidity and/or mortality is higher than the disadvantage ensuing from oncological, financial and patient demanding considerations.
