Abstract

Esophagectomy is the treatment of choice for cancer or high-grade dysplasia. Although the patients frequently experience symptoms postoperatively, their quality of life is most often comparable to that of a control population. This article provides details of post-esophagectomy symptomatology and examines how quality of life can be measured in these patients.
