Strategy for curative endoscopic resection of undifferentiated-type early gastric cancer

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


Endoscopic resection (ER) of undifferentiated-type early gastric cancer (UD-EGC) has a lower curative resection (CR) rate than differentiated-type EGC. However, if UD-EGC is curatively resected using ER, long-term outcomes can be favorable. Thus, the strategy for CR by ER is important in UD-EGC. To achieve CR in UD-EGC, biological behaviors including tumor growth patterns must be considered. This review aims to describe what is important for curative ER of UD-EGC.
