BACKGROUND Stage IV gastric carcinoma is rarely curatively resected and almost invariably carries a poor prognosis. Several clinicopathologic factors are involved, but lymphatic spread of the cancer may significantly affect survival. STUDY DESIGN A retrospective study was designed to evaluate whether the nodal metastatic rate (number of lymph node metastases/number of resected lymph nodes) is a parameter of lymphatic spread and could provide a significant prognostic factor. Several prognostic… Expand
