The Authors report their experience concerning 129 cases of gastrointestinal neoplasms (gastric, colonie, anorectal), recorded during the last years among patients aged between 70 and 81 years, who underwent radical surgery. The main issues evaluated were: anaesthesiological risk, stage, post-operative mortality and morbidity. Elderly seems not to be a contraindication, nor a limit for surgery if the patient is correctly and strictly managed pre and post-operatively.
