Curative resection of advanced gastric cancer responding to preoperative chemotherapy--a case report

, : Curative resection of advanced gastric cancer responding to preoperative chemotherapy--a case report. Gan to Kagaku Ryoho. Cancer & ChemoTherapy 28(4): 527-530

A 56-year-old male was admitted for treatment of advanced gastric cancer. The patient was diagnosed as having an unresectable advanced gastric cancer because cancer cells had invaded the pancreas head and there were metastatic lymph nodes. The patient underwent preoperative chemotherapy (FLEP: intra-arterial infusion of CDDP, ETP and intravenous infusion of 5-FU, LV). The primary tumor and metastatic lymph nodes were reduced by three course of chemotherapy. The patient underwent curative resection and survived without recurrence for 14 months after operation. Preoperative chemotherapy using FLEP was performed in 15 patients with unresectable primary advanced gastric cancer. This therapy resulted in significantly higher survival times. In conclusion, FLEP has been shown to be effective for unresectable advanced gastric cancer.
