BACKGROUND According to clinicopathologic studies, differentiated-type mucosal early gastric cancers without ulcer or ulcer scar have little risk of lymph-node metastasis, irrespective of tumor size. However, patients with large mucosal early gastric cancer have been subjected to surgery because conventional EMR methods could not resect large tumors en bloc. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the feasibility and the efficacy of endoscopic submucosal dissection for treatment of early gastric cancers larger… CONTINUE READING
