The overall 5-year survival rate of 21% to 55%, lymph node negative group of 5-year survival rate was 91%, significantly higher than other groups. Barrett esophageal cancer clinical staging and the impact of tumor size is an important factor in long-term survival, we analyzed 51 cases of esophageal cancer survival Barrett, Ⅱ period of tumors and tumor diameter <6cm from the 5-year survival rates were 25% and 21%, and stage Ⅲ and Ⅳ and tumor diameter> 6cm, respectively, were 4.5% and 0. Prognosis and tumor differentiation and the situation of foreign invasion, but not with tumor site, patient age, sex and has nothing to do surgery.
