Core Tip The 7th edition of the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) and the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) TNM staging system for esophageal and gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) cancer is the first data-driven staging system for esophageal and GEJ cancers. It is based on the Worldwide Esophageal Cancer Collaboration database, which includes 4627 patients from a large multi-institutional collaboration involving 13 institutions and a data period ranging from the 1970s to the 2000s. Therefore, the surgical procedures, pathologic examinations, and patient follow-up can vary greatly between different institutions, resulting in inevitable bias. In this retrospective study, we used a large cohort of patients who had undergone potentially curative surgery for ESCC at a single institution and confirmed the predictive ability of the 7th edition of the UICC-AJCC TNM staging system.
