Quality Improves Gastric Cancer Outcomes
surgery - the complete removal of the tumor (R0 resection) - has
long been considered the treatment of choice and the only treatment
modality able to provide cure in localized gastric cancer. But
until now, the optimal extent of this surgical resection still
remains highly debated. Several factors including tumor stage
and difficulties in accurate pre-, or intra-operative staging-prediction,
surgical complications, risks of residual disease and recurrence,
as well as quality of life (QOL) differentially influence and
complicate the selection of appropriate extent of surgery.
