It is vital to grasp all the complex lymph pathways while appearing surgical procedure for esophageal melanoma as a way to be sure the level of lymph node metastasis. Professor Sato has undertaken, on the request of the TNM examine Committee of the foreign Society for ailments of the Esophagus, to map out and classify the lymph nodes of the mediastinum and neck. the gorgeous art within the Color Atlas of Surgical Anatomy for Esophageal Cancer edited by means of Professor Sato provides an exceptional realizing of the lymph node pathways and their significance in surgical procedure. Minute dissections which symbolize genuine existence events, not only the superficial pathways, exhibit the correct position and topographical association of the lymphatics. Full-color schematics are given with the particular dissection illustrations and images. The atlas essentially offers the category of 4 major pathways and their verbal exchange, the connection of those pathways en path to the venous angles and the definition and review of the main serious nodes. Thoracic surgeons specially will enjoy the very good illustrations of surgical innovations and the tools for recording the dissected lymph nodes that are offered by means of Professor Kakegawa. major specialists struggling with esophageal melanoma with surgical operation can use the type during this amazing atlas for a few years to return as a customary for foreign comparability. The cautious dissection of the lymph nodes could be the most sensible approach to increase survival charges after surgical procedure for melanoma of the thoracic esophagus.

In the future, it is important to obtain a more definite and preoperatively applicable classification of tumor appearance that relates to the grade of malignancy. Strategy for Radical Lymph Node Dissection Huang  has stated that major improvement in survival has been achieved by detection OIf this disease in its early stages, and Ellis et al. " The importance of early diagnosis cannot be overemphasized. If the tumor is found as a carcinoma in situ, treatment is obviously much simpler. However, the majority of patients are still diagnosed in the advanced stage.
Sakamoto Right Deep Pathway Fig. 2 This is an illustration of the esophagus and related structures when approached from the right side, based on the dissection of specimen 1. As the arch of the azygos vein has been cut and moved away, the whole length of the thoracic esophagus can be seen. The lung has been shifted to the front. Thus, the back surface of the right bronchus as well as the inferior pulmonary vein are visible. The vagus nerve, after giving off the recurrent laryngeal nerve which surrounds the subclavian artery, descends along the trachea slightly obliquely and reaches the back side of the bronchus.
