Surgery that is completed more quickly has shown better results. In the current study, we sought to ascertain if the length of the surgical procedure had an impact on patients who had esophagectomy on their Overall Survival (OS). We also evaluated elements that affect how long a surgery takes. A single surgeon performed an Ivor-Lewis esophagectomy on 128 patients between 2005 and 2019 in this single-center retrospective cohort analysis. The length of surgery, neoadjuvant chemotherapy, pathological grade of depth of tumour invasion, Lymph Node (LN) metastases, Body Mass Index (BMI), and cervical LN dissection were all examined for their associations with Overall Survival (OS) using the Cox proportional hazard model. A logistic regression analysis was also used to look at the components that contribute to prolonged surgical duration. The length of the esophagectomy procedure for esophageal cancer was found to be strongly influenced by BMI in a review of patients who received the same surgical procedure with a single surgeon; however, the length of the procedure had no effect on patient survival.
