Abstract

Curative treatment of localised oesophageal cancer involves Surgery with or without neoadjuvant chemotherapy or chemo-radiotherapy. Non surgical approach of definitive chemo-radiotherapy (dCRT) or radical radiotherapy is advocated for reasons of patient's choice, medical co-morbidity or un-resectable disease.
