Abstract - 

Surgical treatment of gastric cancer: achieved and unsolved

      Gastric cancer (GC) is a common cancers in eastern Asia. For the past decades, endoscopic screening, radical surgery and adjuvant chemotherapy have led to the improvement of GC prognosis. In this presentation, we would first review the main achievements of GC treatment including (1) Radical gastrectomy and adequate lymph node dissection; (2) The use of adjuvant chemotherapy following radical gastrectomy; (3) The impact of minimally-invasive surgery. 

 

      On the other side, the outcome of advanced gastric cancer remains poor. We would discuss the unsolved problems, which include (1) GC with peritoneal metastasis; (2) Optimal treatment for esophago-gastric junction cancer; (3) Conversion surgery for stage IV diseases.

      Recent efforts toward precision medicine shed some light on the field of GC treatment. We would keep exploring effective strategies of GC management.
