Abstract Share this page

Whether gastrectomy with D2 lymphadenectomy improves survival of patients with advanced gastric cancer (AGC) remains controversial. Few studies have described the pathological features of AGC with metastatic suprapancreatic lymph nodes (LN), which are the target of D2 lymphadenectomy. This study therefore aims to clarify the prognosis and clinical pathological features including the number and location of metastatic LN in AGC with metastatic suprapancreatic LN.
