Abstract

At present, only radical surgical resection of gastric cancer offers a chance for cure. The objective of an operation for patients with disease that is confined locally is to maximize the potential for cure. The objective for patients with advanced incurable disease, obstruction, hemorrhage, and intractable pain is to provide the best palliation. The evaluation, staging, and surgical management of gastric cancer are described.
