  1. Quality of life in patients with resected oesophageal cancer.

    Article - En anglais

    Quality of Life (QL) is hard to assess and seldom measured in patients having carcinomas with an unfavourable prognosis.

    Oesophageal cancer is one of the malignancies with a low 5-year survival rate.

    Dysphagia (problems in swallowing food) is considered to be the most important indicator of QL in patients with oesophageal carcinoma.

    Moreover, the psycho-social aspects and subjective QL in cancer have recently gained importance.

    The present study investigated QL in a 132 patients with oesophageal cancer.
