Abstract: The purpose of this study was to elucidate the factors that influence the clinical evaluation of the depth of tumor invasion in patients with T1 (tumor invasion of mucosa or submucosa) gastric cancer. The depth of tumor invasion was determined in 593 patients with gastric cancer. Patients were divided into two groups based on the agreement between clinical and pathological evaluation of depth of tumor invasion. Of 320 patients with clinical T1 gastric cancer, consistent diagnoses were made in 308 (96.2%) patients (consistent diagnosis group) while inconsistent diagnoses were made in 12 (3.8%) patients (inconsistent diagnosis group). In the clinical T1 gastric cancer, multivariate logistic regression analysis revealed that the disagreement between the clinical and pathological evaluation of the depth of tumor invasion was independently related to two variables; tumor location (upper stomach) and maximum tumor diameter (?30 mm). For clinical T1 gastric cancer with ?30 mm in maximum tumor diameter located in the upper stomach, caution should be exercised when selecting therapy.
