Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Open esophagectomy. Informed consent is provided describing risk and benefits of the procedure. All open procedures are performed by experienced oesophageal and upper GI surgeons. The Duration of the procedure is 120-240 minutes. Patients are surveilled on the intensive care unit postoperatively. Open esophagectomy involves thoracotomy and laparotomy. After esophageal resection, reconstruction and anastomosis is performed using the remnant stomach.
Intervention code [1] 299197 0
Treatment: Surgery
Comparator / control treatment
Minimal invasive (laparoscopic and thoracosopic) esophagecotmy. Informed consent is provided describing risk and benefits of the procedure. All minimal invasive procedures are performed by experienced oesophageal and upper GI surgeons. The Duration of the procedure is 120-240 minutes. Esophagectomy and Reconstruction are performed with minimal invasive approach such as laparoscopic and thoracoscopic. Patients are surveilled on the intensive care unit postoperatively.

Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 303477 0
Composite Primary outcome: cytokine Response (IL)-6 and IL-8, the anti-inflammatory IL-1 RA and the chemokines CINC-1 and MCP-1.Blood specimens were collected from intravenous or arterial lines that were routinely in place. Concentrations of IL-6, IL-8, IL-1RA, CINC-1 and MCP-1 in the blood and the collected pleural fluid were analyzed using enzyme-linked immune-sorbent assays (ELISA, R & D Systems, Minneapolis, MN, USA).
Timepoint [1] 303477 0
