The aim of our study was to optimise current therapy of gastric tumours. The studied population consisted of 92 patients treated at the 1st Department of Surgery, St. Anne's Teaching Hospital, Brno, Czech Republic, and at the Department of Radiation Oncology of the same hospital during 1994-2000. We have proven that, nowadays, a radical surgical procedure still remains the best method used for the treatment of malignant illnesses of the stomach. Results from clinical studies show that preoperative chemotherapy is effective and that postponed surgical therapy has no impact on survival (Fig. 4, Ref. 21). Full Text (Free, PDF)
