Abstract

Esophagectomies are almost always performed to resect neoplastic processes. The nature and extent of the neoplastic process, however, may be quite variable. Lesions may range from microscopic alterations in patients with a long history of Barrett’s esophagus to large fungating carcinomas in patients presenting with obstruction and dysphagia.
