Background Data to the Study of Advanced Gastric Cancer

  • Takeo Nagayo


During the 25 years from 1957 to 1981, a series of 264693 outpatients underwent X-ray examination of the stomach in Yokoyama Hospital, with whom the author have been collaborated. In 9826 of these patients (3.7%) a diagnosis of gastric cancer or suspected gastric cancer was recorded. In 5051 patients (51.4%) gastric resection was performed in the hospital. The proportion of outpatients undergoing stomach X-ray and subsequent surgery was thus 1.9% (Table 3).
