Keywords Red cell distribution width; Prognostic impact; Systematic review; Meta-analysis
Core Tip Red cell distribution width (RDW) has been established as a prognostic factor for cancer patients. In consideration of esophageal cancer (EC), many ar­ticles have concluded that RDW is correlated with poor prognosis. However, recent studies have indicated that elevated RDW harbors no prognostic value for EC, which might, instead, be a favorable prognostic factor for EC patients. No consensus is available in the previous literature concerning whether elevated RDW is a negative or favorable prognostic factor for EC patients. To this end, for the first time, this systematic review and meta-analysis was performed to evaluate the prognostic value of RDW in EC.
