Acquisition of histologic diversity contributes to not only invasiveness but also lymph node metastasis in early gastric cancer.

Abstract

BACKGROUND As more endoscopic resections are performed in early gastric cancer, the pretreatment prediction of lymph node metastasis (LNM) becomes more important. Some tumor characteristics including histologic type, invasion depth, ulceration, size, and lymphovascular invasion have been used to determine the endoscopic resectability of early gastric cancer… (More)
