    Abstract: Objective: Esophageal endoscopic ultrasound with fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) is a critical staging tool for patients with esophageal cancer. Previous reports suggest that it is frequently incorrect when it predicts a patient to be N0. The purpose of this study is to assess the...

    Background: Preoperative chemo radiotherapy improves the prognosis of locally advanced low rectal cancer and induces a pathological response in the tumor, which may have prognostic value. Aim: To assess the results of rectal cancer treatment according to the degree of pathological response of...

    Background and Purpose: It is known that radiotherapy or chemotherapy alone don't represent a standard of care as adjuvant treatment for patients with advanced gastric cancer that underwent surgical resection. The purpose in the approach of this cancer is to find an adjuvant treatment that can...
