Abstract

Local recurrence of gastric carcinoma after surgery is defined as histologic evidence of a tumor in the surrounding tissues of the resected stomach. Compared with the large number of articles describing tumor recurrence after colectomy for colonic carcinoma, few reports have been published on the CT findings after gastrectomy. We illustrate the CT features of local tumor recurrence after gastrectomy in 36 patients in whom recurrence was confirmed pathologically or by definitive findings on CT scans.
