          Abstract

          Many series have reported a lessening of the incidence of anastomotic dehiscence after thoracoabdominal resection of esophageal carcinomata. This has resulted in fatal respiratory complications assuming a relatively greater role as a cause of death after such procedures. This study was conducted to investigate the impact of the routine use of thoracic epidural analgesia on respiratory complications after resection for esophageal carcinoma.
