Focused Issue on Global Trends in The Surgical Management of Gastric Cancer

Posted On 2020-02-19 03:39:21


In this focused issue, Global Trends in the Surgical Management of Gastric Cancer, we present original articles, reviews of literature and expert opinions by international experts covering a spectrum of key topics from changing guidelines in multimodality management, update on D2 lymphadenectomy, utility of enhanced recovery after surgery, technical considerations in robotic gastrectomy, and clinical trial outcomes. In sum, they provide insight into the concepts that are setting the global trends in GC care worldwide toward opti-mization of GC patient outcomes.
