Open Versus Laparoscopically-assisted Esophagectomy for Cancer
Open vs Laparoscopically-assisted Esophagectomy for Cancer: A Multicentric Phase III Prospective Randomized Controlled Trial

To compare laparoscopically-assisted gastric mobilization versus open gastric mobilization in Ivor-Lewis esophagectomy for esophageal cancer, with open thoracic approach in the 2 arms.

Open Versus Laparoscopically-assisted Esophagectomy for Cancer

Phase 3
Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Esophageal Cancer
Procedure: Laparoscopically-assisted esophagectomy
To compare during the abdominal approach the laparoscopic route to the open route for gastric mobilization. Thoracic approach will be the same between the 2 arms through thoracotomy with extended two field lymphadenectomy
Other Name: esophagectomy with extended two-field lymphadenectomy
  • Experimental: Laparoscopically-assisted esophagectomy
    Laparoscopically-assisted esophagectomy: standard abdominal procedure of gastric mobilisation but through laparoscopic route. Right thoracotomy as usual.
    Intervention: Procedure: Laparoscopically-assisted esophagectomy
  • Active Comparator: Open esophagectomy
    Conventional open esophagectomy: Esophagectomy with extended 2-field lymphadenectomy through laparotomy and right thoracotomy (Ivor-Lewis standard procedure)
    Intervention: Procedure: Laparoscopically-assisted esophagectomy
