Despite the decrease in incidence observed during the last decades, gastric adenocarcinoma remains the fourth most common cancer in the world and the second leading cause of cancer-related death. Radical surgical resection is the best treatment option, though the role of extended and super-extended lymphadenectomy remains debatable. This review examines the different issues related to the surgical treatment of early and advanced gastric adenocarcinoma as well as the most recent strategies for the treatment and prevention of peritoneal carcinomatosis.
