Staging and Outcome Depending on Surgical Treatment in Adenocarcinomas of the Oesophagogastric Junction
Background: Owing to controversial staging and classification of adenocarcinoma of the oesophagogastric junction (AOG) before surgery, the choice of appropriate surgical approach remains problematic.
In a retrospective study, preoperative staging of AOG and the impact of preoperative misclassification on outcome were analysed. Methods: Data from patients with AOG were analysed from a prospectively collected database with regard to surgical treatment, preoperative and postoperative staging, and outcome.
