Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An esophagogastrectomy is a surgical procedure that is performed for treatment of confirmed localized esophageal and esophagogastric junction adenocarcinoma. Proper macroscopic assessment and cut-up technique is essential to ensure that the overall assessment is correct and reproducible. Here, we describe a standard for macroscopic assessment and dissection to be used for routine handling of esophagogastrectomy specimens in the clinical laboratory.
