Abstract

Possibilities and limits of conservative surgery in the treatment of gastric stump neoplasms. In the Italian population the risk of gastric stump cancer after surgery for peptic ulcer is increased after 20-30 years. Bearing in mind that further surgery has little curative chances, we examined the series seen at the Institute of General Surgery of the University of Milan (1983-1992) to investigate whether or not patients followed-up endoscopically have a better chance of cure after surgery. Although only 10 patients were available for evaluation, it was evident that patients found at endoscopic screening in stage 0 and I (UICC classification) had a good survival after surgery. Our results support the need of strict endoscopic follow-up of resected patients 20 or more years after surgery and the need of further investigations to establish whether or not reresection is useful and safe for early lesions.
