Abstract: Between 1968 and 1983, out of 1,137 gastric cancer patients who underwent laparotomy, 344 patients had cancer invasion into a contiguous organ based on gross findings. The incideces of peritoneal dissemination, metastasis to the liver and extensive lymph node involvement were observed at the rates of 52.9%, 17.2% and 37.8%, respectively. Two hundred and twenty-one patients had gastrectomy with or without combined resection of other organs. The resectability rate was 62.9%. The commonly invaded organs were the pancreas(49.3%), transverse colon (13.1%), liver (10.4%), and diaphragma (5.9%). Combined resection of the stomach and the surrounding organ was performed in 139 patients (62.9%). The operative motality rate was 4.9%. The crude five-year survival rate for gastrectomy was 10.8% ; 27.4% in curative resection and 3.5% in non-curative resection. In contrast, none of the 123 patients in the non- resected group survived 3 years postoperatively. The results support that aggressive gastrectomy is indicated in selected patients as far as curability can be expected by means of combined resection.
