BACKGROUND Gastric neoplasia is a heterogeneous and multifactorial disease and its incidence and mortality vary widely based on geographic location. Approximately 60% of the diagnoses of patients from occidental countries were made on the stages III and IV. The best treatment still is to realize a surgical procedure. AIM Identify the epidemiological aspects of the patients diagnosed with T4b gastric adenocarcinoma. METHODS The study was observational, transversal and retrospective; it was… Expand

ADJUVANT CHEMORADIOTHERAPY AFTER SUBTOTAL OR TOTAL GASTRECTOMY AND D2 LIMPHADENECTOMY INCREASES SURVIVAL IN ADVANCED GASTRIC CANCER?
TLDR
Patients undergoing adjuvant therapy with complete chemoradiotherapy showed a longer survival when compared to those who did it incompletely or underwent exclusive surgery, and there was a significant difference in survival for T4b patients undergoing surgical treatment with curative intent.

Surgical outcomes in patients with T4 gastric carcinoma: a retrospective study of 162 patients
TLDR
Curability was an independent prognostic factor among all registered patients and might be benefited from curative resection in patients with T4 gastric carcinoma. Expand
Aggressive Surgical Approach for Patients with T4 Gastric Carcinoma: Promise or Myth?
TLDR
Aggressive surgical management of pT4 gastric carcinoma should be limited to patients without adverse prognostic factors such as advanced nodal involvement and pancreatic invasion. Expand
Surgical outcomes in patients with T4 gastric carcinoma.
TLDR
The use of aggressive combined resection of adjacent organs, with extended lymph node dissection, is recommended for patients with T4 gastric carcinoma in whom curative resection can be used; that is, those with few metastatic lymph nodes (six or less) and a relatively small tumor diameter (100 mm).

Prognostic factors of T4 gastric cancer patients undergoing potentially curative resection.
TLDR
Positive peritoneal washing cytology was the only independent poor prognostic factor for T4 gastric cancer patients who could be treated with potentially curative resection for long-term survival. Expand
Aggressive surgical treatment for T4 gastric cancer
TLDR
In multivariate analysis, peritoneal dissemination, lymph node ratio, and histologic findings were the predictors of survival, and patients with T4 gastric carcinoma, even with lymph node metastasis, might have benefited from aggressive surgery with curative intent. Expand
Achieving RO resection for locally advanced gastric cancer: is it worth the risk of multiorgan resection?
TLDR
Resection of two or more adjacent organs in advanced gastric adenocarcinoma is associated with a greater risk of developing a complication, and a graded surgical complication scale is needed for better reporting and comparison of complications. Expand
Transverse Mesocolon Invasion in Advanced Gastric Cancer: Should We Reconsider Current T Staging?
According to the AJCC/UICC TNM classification, T mesocolon invasion in AGC is classified as T2b or T3 according to the presence or the absence of serosa invasion. However, many authors haveExpand
Surgical outcomes and survival after multiorgan resection for locally advanced gastric cancer.
TLDR
For patients with locally advanced gastric carcinoma, multiple organ resection is worthwhile with careful patient selection with regard to surgical morbidity, mortality, and survival. Expand

TLDR
The shared high incidence of gastric cancer and high prevalence of H. pylori, as well as differences in many aspects of Gastric cancer, provide an excellent opportunity to establish Sino-Japanese collaborations. Expand

TLDR
In spite of the observed trend, gastric cancer mortality rates in Belém at the last period of the series (1995-97) were still higher than those exhibited by some of the other State Capitals in 1980-82. Expand
