Abstract: The treatment for thirty three advanced carcinoma of thoracic esophagus with cancer infiltrations to the adjacent organs were clinically analysed. The most affected organs were the aorta, followed by the trachea and bronchus. Clinical features are that two or three organs are affected at the same time and only one organ involvement is rare in frequency. Furthermore, nodal involvement is commonly accompanied and is spreading to the mediastium and abdomen. Surgical outcome of combined resection with involved organs is now unsatisfactory. In contrast, to relieve severe symptoms and to ensure the quality of life, aggressive combined resection is indispensable. It is assumed that further advances in improvement of potent anticancer drugs and surgical techniques may lead to prolonged survival of advanced esophageal cancer patients.
