Standardization is of key importance when comparing different results, specially in surgery. In this context, a barrier existed up to recently due to the lack of a consistent lexicon to define complications, with specific complications often not defined at all, or variable terms utilized. To enable research in this area, and comparison with published studies, and national and international comparative audit and benchmarking, the Esophageal Complications Consensus Group (ECCG) was established in 2011.The Esodata (Esodata.org) collaboration evolved from such an initiative, creating an enormously powerful dataset of contemporary international practice and outcomes. Reynolds, JV et al., compare the outcomes and complications of esophageal resections after centralization of esophageal cancer treatment in Ireland. The patients undergoing esophageal resection at St. James’s Hospital, Dublin, the designated Irish National Esophageal and Gastric Center (INC) between January 2014 and December 2018, were prospectively studied. Their data was compared to the original study published by the ECCG consortium and with the Dutch Upper Gastrointestinal Cancer Audit (DUCA).
