Total gastrectomy extended to the head of the pancreas and the liver with D4 lymphadenectomy for well-differentiated gastric carcinoma



Total gastrectomy extended to the head of the pancreas and the liver with D4 lymphadenectomy for well-differentiated gastric carcinoma



I Supplementi di Tumori 4(3): S81



Adenocarcinoma of the stomach is the second most common cancer worldwide. Early diagnosis and an adequate surgical approach could save live. Surgical approach is conditioned by the extension of the disease and the presence of metastases. Extended lymph-node dissection (D2) has been generally accepted as a standard treatment modality. However, the role of the super-extended lymphadenectomy (D4) for gastric cancer has not been established.
