Comments on the article by Whiting et al in the 2002 issue of the periodical 'Gut,' which shows how the prevalence of gastric cancer detected at an early stage is significantly higher in the endoscopically surveyed population than in nonsurveyed patients. Cost effectiveness of endoscopy surveillance for premalignant gastric lesions.

    The aims of this study are to evaluate and compare the accuracies of isotropic multi-detector row CT (MDCT) including multiplanar reconstruction (MPR) images for preoperative staging of endoscopically diagnosed early gastric cancer (eEGC) and advanced gastric cancer (eAGC). One hundred and five...

    Background: A preoperative histologic diagnosis of neoplasia is a requirement for endoscopic resection (ER). However, discrepancies may occur between histologic diagnoses based on biopsy specimens versus ER specimens. The aim of this study was to assess the rate of discrepancy between histologic...

    The purpose of this study was to compare the outcome and resectability of patients with gastric cancer recurrence after curative surgery detected by follow-up endoscopy, according to the presence or absence of symptoms. All patients with gastric carcinoma, who underwent a curative gastrectomy,...

    BACKGROUND: The identification of gastric superficial cancerous lesions based on conventional white-light endoscopy (WLE) is challenging, and histological analysis remains the ‘gold standard’ for the final diagnosis. Confocal laser endomicroscopy (CLE) can provide in vivo...

    Fiberoptic endoscopy was performed on 28 patients with gastric cancer. In these patients a positive x-ray diagnosis of cancer had been made in only 10 of the 28 prior to endoscopy. A visual diagnosis of cancer was made in all but two cases where the cancer was visualized. In two cases, radiation...

    Early gastric cancer is being encountered with increasing frequency in Germany as well as Japan and elsewhere through greater awareness, selection of high risk patients and improved diagnostic methods. We consider endoscopy superior to radiology in the detection of early gastric cancer. Polypoid...

    Background: Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) allows non-invasive stimulation of the human brain. However, no suitable marker has yet been established to monitor the immediate rTMS effects on cortical areas in children. Objective: TMS-evoked EEG potentials (TEPs) could present...

    Background: Endoscopic forceps biopsy is insufficient for a definitive diagnosis of dysplastic lesions. It is difficult to decide clinical management of gastric indefinite neoplasia diagnosed by endoscopic forceps biopsy when early gastric cancer (EGC) is macroscopically suspected....
