Abstract. Most esophageal carcinomas are diagnosed at a late stage, leaving palliative care as a more realistic choice for this group of patients. Dysphagia in this case is the leading symptom, which leads to cachexy, a decrease in the quality and duration of life. Stenting is a relatively safe method of choice for malignant esophageal obstruction, allowing you to quickly and effectively eliminate the symptoms of dysphagia. However, to date, there is no consensus in choosing the optimal method of palliative care for this group of patients. In order to study this problem, this work has been done. The article analyzes the life expectancy of 193 patients with implanted esophageal stents with various malignant pathology of the esophagus and esophageal-gastric junction. The data of survival of patients depending on the localization of malignant process and histological type of tumors are presented.
Key words: esophageal stenting, esophageal carcinoma, life expectancy, survival.
