Although there has been a slow but steady decrease in incidence, gastric cancer remains the second leading cause of cancer death worldwide. Several aspects of the oncological and surgical management are still controversial and so gastric cancer represents a challenge for the surgeon. This book aims to delineate the state of the art in the surgical and oncological treatment of gastric cancer, describing the new TNM staging system, the extent of visceral resection and lymphadenectomy focusing on the different open and minimally invasive surgical techniques and discussing intraoperative chemohyperthermia and neoadjuvant and adjuvant treatment. Operative endoscopy and endoscopic ultrasonography are also discussed, as these now have an important role in both diagnostic work-up and palliative care of gastric cancer patients. Only a multidisciplinary approach involving the surgeon, gastroenterologist, and oncologist can produce the comprehensive and integrated overview that today constitutes a winning strategy for the optimization of results.What we hope we have achieved is a flexible, up-to-date, exhaustive publication, rich in illustrations and consistent with evidence-based medicine.

Gastric cancer has been one of the great malignant scourges affecting man kind for as long as medical records have been kept. Until operative resection pioneered by Bilroth and others became available, no effective treatment was feasible and death from cancer was virtually inevitable. Even with resection by total gastrectomy, the chances of tumor eradication remained small. Over recent years, however, the situation has been changing. Some changes have resulted from better understanding of the disease, early detec tion, and better management techniques with applied clinical research, but the reasons for other changes are poorly understood. For example, the incidence of gastric cancer is decreasing, especially in westernized societies, where it has fallen from one of the most common cancers to no longer being in the top five causes of cancer death. Still it remains the number one killer of adult males in Japan and Korea. Whether the reduced incidence in western societies is a result of dietary changes or methods of food preservation, or some other reason, is as yet uncertain. Improvements in outcome have been reported from mass screening and early detection; more refined techniques of establishing early diagnosis, tumor type, and tumor extent; more radical surgical resection; and resection at earlier stages of disease.

The overall prognosis for patients with gastric cancer remains poor as tumors are often diagnosed at an advanced stage, despite new developments and technical advances in endoscopic diagnosis and therapy. This publication brings together leading experts in the fields of basic research and clinical management of gastric cancer, to share their expertise with the clinical community. State-of-the-art reviews discuss the pathogenesis of and the most important risk factors for the development of gastric cancer, potential benefits of chemoprevention and Helicobacter pylori eradication. Moreover, new diagnostic modalities and surgical therapy, including the potential benefits of neoadjuvant and adjuvant therapies, are presented. As most patients require palliative therapy because of locally advanced or metastasized cancers, several reviews are dedicated to advances in the chemotherapy of advanced gastric cancers and peritoneal metastasis. Finally, future approaches towards a molecular diagnosis and therapy are described. Those involved in the management of gastric cancer patients will find the information presented in this publication of utmost help and will benefit greatly for their daily routine.

Gastric cancer is the second most common cause of cancer-related death in the world. There are no screening tests available for its diagnosis, therefore patients usually presents in late stages, associated with poor prognosis. Currently, many efforts are made toward new advances in the treatment strategies. The book makes an insight into the assessment of premalignant lesions, current management of early gastric cancer, risk and protective factors in gastric carcinogenesis. "Gastric cancer" provides a detailed description of the morphologic classification, molecular changes and epigenetic alterations of this tumor. The book describes the role of different diagnostic tools in the preoperative assessment of patients and the most important factors contributing to the prognosis. Moreover, it describes the current surgical and chemotherapeutic options for gastric neoplasm. This publication may open new and interesting gates for further research concerning carcinogenesis, genetic and epigenetic alterations, signaling pathways, H. pylori infection, the discovery of protective factors against gastric cancer and of revolutionary therapies of this tumor.

This book is designed to present readers with comprehensive, high-quality research results on almost all aspects of this carcinoma in clinical management, from correct determination of the esophagogastric junction, issues on cardiac mucosa, epidemiology, and natural history, to clinical, endoscopic, and histopathologic features and diagnostic pitfalls of this carcinoma at both early and advanced stages. Once diagnosed and correctly staged, clinical management of this carcinoma at the early stage is addressed primarily with endoscopic therapy employing the latest endoscopic technology such as endoscopic submucosal dissection, in which detailed technical topics of the endoscopic therapy are written by experts in the field with sections from pre-resection staging and patient preparation to post-resection complications and management. Subsequently, clinical management of gastric cardiac carcinoma at advanced stages is discussed at length with a personalized, multidiscipline approach with strategies from surgical resections with various methods, to pre-, peri- and post-resection chemoradiation therapies as well as the most advanced immunotherapy. A state-of-art approach with the results of meta-analyses and large-scale randomized double-blinded clinical trials are employed throughout these chapters. For patients at the terminal ill stage, the appropriate palliative care plan is presented by experienced clinicians armed with the latest clinical practice guidelines to better manage and help those patients in the last period of their lives.

This book offers essential information on basic and translational research in gastric cancer, while also illustrating potential opportunities for its application in clinical practice. Gastric cancer is the fourth-most-common cancer globally and the second-leading cause of cancer deaths. It is known to be a heterogeneous disease with varied responses to “one-size-fits-all” treatments. Expanding our knowledge of cancer cell genetics may help us to explore more effective treatments in gastric cancer. The research on molecular mechanisms and its clinical applications, both presented here, will help readers gain an in-depth understanding of gastric cancer and its effective treatment. The book’s four sections cover personalized medicine, precise regional therapy, immunotherapy and nanomedicine in gastric cancer. Each part presents the state of art, recent advances and the authors’ experiences. Moreover, several interesting cases are described to demonstrate how gastric cancer patients benefit from translational research. This informative and attractively presented book on precision treatment in gastric cancer, including experimental findings and clinical treatment options, offers a valuable resource for oncologists and graduate students working in the field of gastric cancer.

Cancer is the leading cause of death in many countries, and digestive cancer is one of the most common types of neoplasms. Advances in research on the management of digestive cancer therefore represent an important contribution to the welfare of humankind throughout the world. The VICC Kyoto International Symposium on Recent Advances in the Management of Digestive Cancer was held in Kyoto from March 31 to April 2, 1993 under the presidency of Dr. T. Takahashi of the Kyoto Prefectural Vniversity of Medicine. At this event, leading researchers and clinicians presented new findings and the latest results of clinical trials concerning digestive cancers. The VICC President and other members of the Executive Committee of the VICC also gave speeches on their own fields, and more than 1000 participants from 28 countries were very well received. This book presents the proceedings of this symposium. In addition to 30 selected papers presented at special lectures and symposia by invited speakers, this book contains 230 free papers presented at poster sessions during this conference.
