In patients with oesophageal cancer, the effect of lymphadenectomy on survival remains unclear. A recent retrospective cohort study suggests that extensive lymphadenectomy does not improve survival and might even hamper it in patients with early T-stage tumours. The available data show conflicting results and the introduction of neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy might decrease any positive effect of extensive lymphadenectomy on survival.
