  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Endoscopic treatments for early gastric cancer-local resection, intragastric mucosal resection, and partial gastrectomy with limited lymph node dissection-are currently accepted practice. However, endoscopic gastrectomy for advanced gastric cancer is still controversial, including endoscopic en-bloc D2 lymph node dis-section. However, we successfully performed endoscopic en-bloc D2, lymph node dissection in 35 patients with gastric cancer without experiencing severe complications or carcinoma recurrence. Our results demonstrate that this surgical procedure is technically feasible and safe.
