Oesophageal and gastro-oesophageal junction tumours
Bird-Lieberman E., Fitzgerald R.
The two most commonly occurring oesophageal tumours are squamous cell carcinomas and adenocarcinomas. These differ in their aetiology, pathogenesis and response to treatment. The incidence of oesophageal adenocarcinoma is rapidly increasing and, for both tumours, the prognosis remains poor. Here, we discuss the management of these tumours as well as the current recommendations for screening and surveillance. © 2007 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
