This comprehensive book covers the entire range of esophageal diseases with regard to epidemiology, pathogenesis, pathophysiology, diagnosis, as well as conservative and, above all, surgical treatment. The book is divided into two parts. The first describes esophageal cancer. The newest methods for preoperative staging, perioperative management, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy of esophageal cancer, the surgical techniques for the different types of carcinoma are covered in detail. The long-term results of surgical treatment are discussed, referring to functional results, recurrance, and survival times. The second part of the book describes benign diseases of the esophagus. New, yet proven diagnostic methods are described in detail, including from a cost-benefit perspective. Both the conservative and the surgical methods of therapy for functional esophageal disorders and reflux disease are extensively reviewed.
