The aim of this study was to document patterns of survival after resection for cure for gastric cancer in a well-defined population. A population-based series of 649 gastric cancers resected for cure between 1976 and 1995 in a 494000 population, was used. Resection for cure was performed in 44.4% of the diagnosed cases. This proportion increased from 36.8% (1976-1979) to 45.0% (1992-1995) (P=0.03) whilst operative mortality decreased from 18.3 to 12.7% (P=0.003). The overall crude 5-year… CONTINUE READING
