Abstract: The combined resection with involved lung for esophageal carcinoma was evaluated in terms of surgical indication and outcome in the 6 patients who underwent subtotal esophagectomy with pulmonary resection. It was confirmed that the operation was technically feasible but the surgical results were unsatisfactory. It was reasoned that grave surgical insult and adjuvant therapy to prevent recurrence result in immunodepressive status of the host and tends to accompany postoperative complications related to operative death. In conclusion, prevention of immunosuppression for the host is required by meticulous cares of nutrition and elimination of surgical stress by staged operation in order to obtain satisfactory result after surgery.
