METHODS: We analysed 1241 patients underwent oesophagectomy for invasive OSCC retrospectively. The demographic and clinicopathologic characteristics were compared between patients who were alive >5 years after oesophagectomy and patients who died within 5 years of oesophagectomy.
RESULTS: Univariate analysis showed significant differences between the two groups regarding 11 different factors. Further analysis by logistic regression showed that eight factors were identified as independent predictors of actual 5-year survival.
CONCLUSIONS: The independent positive predictors for actual 5-year survival are younger patients, female gender, absence of weight loss, R0 resection, lower pathological T stage, lower pathological N stage, higher histologic grade and more resected lymph nodes.
