Abstract

Complete resection of a gastric tumor and adjacent lymph nodes is considered the only proven, effective curative treatment [1, 2]. However, the treatment of gastric cancer has become increasingly sophisticated, with therapies tailored to individual cases 3. Therefore, accurate preoperative staging, particularly with regard to the depth of mural invasion, adjacent organ invasion, nodal involvement, and distant metastases, is vital to determining the most suitable therapy and to avoiding inappropriate attempts at curative surgery.
