Abstract: Between 1970 and 1989, 154 patients underwent esophagectomy for esophageal cancer in our department. One hundred and twenty-one patients underwent esophageal resection and reconstruction and 14 had esopahgectomy alone without reconstruction. There were 26 operative deaths within 30 days after operation. However, the mortality rate was 29.1% during the 1970 to 1979 period, and 10.1% after 1980. Predominant postoperative complications were anastomotic leak, pneumnia, sepsis and recurrent laryngeal nerve paralysis. The rates of postoperative complications during 1970 to 1970, was 67.3% and was 43.3% after 1980. The rate of anastomotic leak was 45.4% in the former years, but it improved to 26.6% in the later period. To prevent the postoperative complications, careful perioperative management of the patients are essential.
