ABSTRACT
The article discusses research being done on the combination of D2 lymphadenectomy and para-aortic nodal dissection in treating gastric cancer. It references a study which appeared in the 2008 issue of "New England Journal of Medicine." According to researchers, the combination of D2 lymphadenectomy and para-aortic nodal dissection was not superior to D2 lymphadenectomy alone in improving the survival rate of patients with gastric cancer. Post-surgery complications did not differ between the two groups.
