Abstract

The SN concept in gastric cancer treatment appears ready to assume several important roles in the individualization of treatment in patients with gastric cancer, especially early gastric cancer. The coming decade is likely to see broad general acceptance of minimally invasive and function-preserving surgery based on the sensitive prediction of LN metastasis by SN biopsy.
