Prediction of lymph node metastasis in patients with submucosa-invading early gastric cancer.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND AIM Early gastric cancer (EGC), with wall invasion limited to the submucosa, has approximately 15 to 20% chance of lymph node metastasis. The purpose of this study is to clarify the parameters which affect lymph node metastasis and survey whether lymph node metastasis can be predicted preoperatively.
