PURPOSE: To investigate the relationships between tumor marker CEA and biological characteristics of esophageal cancer, and it’s value of predicting lymph node metastasis for esophageal cancer
METHODS: Consecutive 111 patients with esophageal cancer who underwent esophagectomy in Beijing Chaoyang Hospital were retrospectively evaluated between December 2010 and January 2014. The Single and multiple factors regression analysis were used to identify the risk factors for Abnormal level of CEA and lymph node metastasis, ROC curves analysis were performed to confirm the diagnostic value of preoperative CEA serum levels for esophageal cancer lymph node metastasis.
