Abstract

Endoscopy is the method of choice for detecting gastric carcinoma. The endoscopist should describe the location and extent of the tumor as accurately as possible. The biopsy specimens must be as numerous and large as possible for classifying the histological type (eg, according to Laurén), and the possible occurrence of mixed intestinal and diffuse types considered. Histologic classification might well determine surgical procedure (see article by H.-J. Meyer) and should therefore be performed as soon as possible prior to surgery. Actual histologic classification and tumor stage determination then ensue intra- and postoperatively (see article by P. Hermanek).
