Abstract

Records were reviewed for all patients who underwent primary treatment for adenocarcinoma of the stomach at two UCLA hospitals between 1956 and 1975. Division of the data into two, ten-year time periods reveals a pattern of unchanging presentation and pathologic characteristics which probably accounts for the unaltered response to operative therapy. The consistency of certain prognostic findings justifies a surgical approach in which extensive resections are only selectively employed.
