Abstract

Two-hundred-and-six cases of gastric carcinoma were analysed for survival on the basis of their clinical, endoscopic and operative findings. An attempt has been made to identify prognostic factors and the role of edoscopy. It is concluded that too much radical surgery is being performed in patients who can be recognised preoperatively as having obviously advanced disease.
