Abstract: Surgical outcome for carcinoma of the esophagus is not yet satisfied. The reasons are based on the delay in diagnosis. As a matter of fact a complaint of dysphagia means advanced stage of cancer. In general, such a patient suffers from poor nutritional condition which relates to restriction of oral intake, and this disease frequently affects the aged people. Furthermore, anatomical specificity of the lack of the serosal layer is likely affected by carcinoma outside the wall of the esophagus. And rich lymphatic flow tends to constitute lymphatic metastasis anywhere in the longitudinal direction. In order to improve surgical results for carcinoma of the esophagus an important access to the treatment is to inhibit the growth of recurrent cancer cells effectively. In this series, experience with recurrent carcinoma of the esophagus was clinically analyzed to search for a better management.
