Surgical resection of gastric cancers remains the standard treatment for patients with localised disease. This article cites a study conducted to investigate how the degree of surgical resection influenced postoperative morbidity and mortality. The data illustrate the increased morbidity and mortality associated with the increased radical nature of surgery for gastric cancer. As such, more radical resections need to be justified with better long term survival.

    Background: Rectal cancer constitutes about one-third of all gastrointestinal (GI) tract tumors. Because of the high recurrence rates (30%) in rectal cancer, it is vitally important to accurately stage these tumours preoperatively so that appropriate surgical resection can be undertaken. MRI is...
