AbstractRecent advances in the treatment of esophageal cancer have yielded a variety of new options for management of this highly lethal disease. Various approaches to surgical resection have been proposed. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy with or without surgery have been tested in numerous trials, the results of which are often conflicting and confusing for clinicians. The changing epidemiology of the disease between East and West adds to the controversy. In this review, the authors address some of the more controversial debates. The following questions are asked: What is the appropriate approach for surgical resection? What is the appropriate extent of resection? Is multimodality treatment appropriate for esophageal cancer?
