09/01/1998 - "PLTE for advanced pharyngeal or cervical esophageal tumors is the best treatment currently available, but it is indicated only in very selected cases: when it is technically impossible to perform reconstruction with a free jejunal graft after circumferential pharyngolaryngectomy; as primary surgery, rather than as salvage surgery following chemoradiotherapy; after careful preoperative morphologic and endoscopic assessment of the extent of the tumor; and in patients able to tolerate a thoracotomy for an esophagectomy with lymphadenectomy. "
07/01/1982 - "The thoracotomy is necessary and the best treatment is enucleation of the tumor."
11/15/1994 - "Comparison between the 36 10-year survivors and the 150 nonsurvivors revealed that only the percentage of incomplete resections and the mean number of resections per patient were significantly different between the two groups (P < 0.001); the histologic type of the primary tumor, the disease-free interval, and the number of resected PMs at the first thoracotomy were not found to be statistically significant prognostic factors. "
08/01/1980 - "At the present time, expeditious limited thoracotomy affords a safe, rapid, and effective treatment for patients with a benign tumor of the lung or bronchus."
03/01/2002 - "In selected cases (Siewert type II-III, T1-3 tumors with clinically negative mediastinal lymphnodes) the procedure in study appears technically feasible, it provides a satisfactory volume of esophageal exeresis and an adequate extension of mediastinal lymphadenectomy, representing a safe and effective alternative to thoracotomy in cardia cancer surgery."
