Since there is no abstract available we provide the first paragraph.
Previous studies on gastric cancer have identified several traditional clinicopathologic factors related to increased risk of postoperative complications, recurrence and mortality from gastric cancer after open surgery. However, these morphologic risk factors have limitations in accurate prediction of morbidity and mortality in individual patients. In a recent study similarly risk factors are explored but with respect to laparoscopic gastrectomy for gastric cancer. The robustness of these morphologic factors and the perspective of next-generation sequencing-based emerging biomarkers are discussed in this comment.
