Abstract

Neodymium:YAG laser therapy has been shown to be a safe and effective palliative treatment for esophageal cancer. Exophytic tumors in a straight segment of the mid- and distal esophagus are most amenable to therapy. Perforation or fistula, the most serious complications, occur in less than 5% of patients.
