  1. Using the Cox regression performed the Univariate and Multivariate Analyses, shown the relation with the prognosis.
  2. The factors in the univariate analyses with P value less than 0.05 would be took in account into multivariate analyses.
  3. ESCC Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma, LN Lymph node, HR Hazard ratio, CI Confident interval.
