The study is conducted on a series of 57 patients treated with D2 gastrectomy with curative intent for gastric cancer between January 2000 and December 2004, at Policlinico Multimedica (Milan). Postoperative mortality was 2%. Recurrence rate was 10%. The overall survival of the series is 36% at 4 years follow-up. Negative prognostic factors were: high grade tumor, locally advanced primary disease, presence of lymph node metastases, advanced stage of disease and recurrent disease at follow-up. The data of the study are comparable to those in the literature.
