Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Surgery of the esophagus may be indicated for benign and malignant pathologies. Esophageal cancer represents the most frequent indication for surgical treatment, and the important nutritional concern arisen in relationship between cancer, surgery, and nutritional status of operated oncological patients has been explored by a vast scientific literature. Among benign pathologies indicating surgery involving the esophagus, achalasia has been largely studied, with surgery representing one of several effective therapeutic options.
