Total Extended Gastrectomy in Advanced Gastric Cancer – Clinical Case


With over one million newly diagnosed cases in 2018, gastric cancer remains the fifth most common malignancy worldwide. Early detection of the disease is challenging as most patients are asymptomatic. The lack of screening programs leads to detection at an advanced stage and worsens the prognosis. Using biomarkers or endoscopic methods for early diagnosis would reduce the mortality from gastric cancer. We present a case of total extended (TEG) in advanced gastric cancer and a literature review of indications and complications of this treatment.
