  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

In surgery of gastric cancer, the technical limits and invasiveness of laparoscopic surgery are regarded as being between those of open surgery and endoscopic surgery. The indications for laparoscopic surgery are early gastric cancer without lymph node metastasis. On the other hand, the indications for endoscopic mucosal resection are lesions with a size of 10 mm or less. Larger lesions are indications for laparoscopic surgery, and resection is possible based on previous results. To establish laparoscopic surgery as a method for gastric cancer, introduction of lymph node dissection is indispensible.
