Abstract :

Upper gastrointestinal surgery comprised of the separate disciplines of oesophagogastric (OG) and hepato-pancreatobiliary (HPB) surgery which includes the operative care of the most complex cancers in alimentary surgery. Historically, any given general surgeon would see relatively few cases each year, resect even fewer and outcomes were notoriously poor. The emergence in the last decade of data from North American centres reporting improvements in outcome following concentration of workload into more specialised units has had a profound influence both on clinical practice and organisational infrastructure. We will discuss the national trends for complex upper GI malignancy treatment.
