5 Gastric Cancer: Clinical Case Presentation
PS: 100% (Karnofsky); 68 yrs old; male; Cardiac stroke 8yrs ago, no other diseases and no drugs at the moment. Endoscopy (17/12/2008): ulcer with free bottom and infiltrated margins at antropyloric region, increased thickness with non crossing stenosis. Contrast CT Thorax+abdomen (01/’09): negative lungs, liver and bones. Increased wall thikcness of gastric antrum (thickness of 2 cm) compatible with Eteroplasy. Concomitant small perivisceral nodes (0.5 cm) Bigger nodes at celiac region (2.1 cm); interaortocaval region (2.1 cm), paraortic region (1 cm). 05/01/’09: Sub-total gastrectomy+limphoadenectomy D2. Histology: Macroscopic: vegetant lesion of 4. 5 cm of antropyloric region at 1 cm from distal margin Microscopic: Carcinoma G3 (70%) and Adenocarcinoma G2 (30%) with entire gastric wall invasion. Free duodenal stump. Free proximal margin M+ of Carcinoma G3 in 1/14 lesser curvature nodes. No M+ in 22 greater curvature. No omental tumour. No M+ in retrocoledocus, retropancreatic, celiac, and left gastric artery nodes. PATHOLOGIC STAGE: p T2 p N1 M0 STAGE II

6 Key Points Diagnostic Work-up for Staging Prognostic Factors
Surgical Treatment Neoadjuvant Treatments Adjuvant Treatments

7 Key Points Diagnostic Work-up for Staging Double Contrast Upper G.I.
Barium Radiological Studies Endoscopy: procedure of choice (8-10 biopsies) Chest-Abdomen-Pelvic enhanced CT sensitivity 23-56% Early Gastric Cancer; 92-95% in advanced tumors metastatic lymph node: size criterion > 10 mm Endoscopic Ultrasonography (EUS) MRI has not achieved clinical importance CT-PET: investigational procedure

8 Key Points Prognostic Factors Tumor Grading ++
R0; R1; R2 resection (operating procedure) +++ T stage +++ Lymphadenectomy ++++ at least 15 lymph nodes removed and analyzed Japanese Classification: 16 node stations in 3 groups depending on T T location +++ proximal cancer poorer SVV vs distal cancer Lymphatic, Venous or Perieneural invasion +++ High CEA levels preop +

9 Key Points Surgical Treatment no advantage for distal (antral) Stomach
Total Gastrectomy: proximal or middle third or diffuse T Total Gastrectomy vs Subtotal Gastrectomy no advantage for distal (antral) Stomach 5 cm free is required for resection margins D1: perigastric LFN along lesser and greater curvatures (1-6) D2: plus LFN along left gastric artery (7), common hepatic artery (8), celiac trunk (9), splenic hilus and splenic artery (10, 11) D3: plus LFN along hepatoduodenal ligament (12), posterior surface of head of the pancreas (13) and the root of the mesentery (14) D4: plus LFN paracolic region and abdominal aorta (15, 16)

10 Key Points Neoadjuvant Treatments
Preop Chemo: high risk pts (T3-T4; N0-2 M0); feasibility in Phase II studies (increase R0 rate); improve SVV in 4 Random Trials (ECF schedule); Type 2 Level of Evidence for Stages II-IV Preop Radiotherapy (RT): benefit in only one random trial 40 Gy+S vs S Further Randomised Trials are required

11 Key Points Adjuvant Treatments
Postop Chemo: results often disappointing; poor compliance with multidrugs schedules; small-moderate benefit Type 2 Level of Evidence for Stages II-IV Postop Radiotherapy (RT): No Benefit Postop ChemoRadiotherapy: SWOG-INT 116, Stage I-IV, M0; Surgery + Obs vs CT-RT 5FU/L 5yrs OS: 40% vs 28.4% (p<0.001) 5yrs DFS: 31% vs 25% (p<0.001) 36% D1; only 10% D2 Kim et al: IJROBP 63, 2005: clinical benefit in D2 (SVV & DFS) Type 2 Level of Evidence for Stages II-IV

27 Key Points Diagnostic Work-up for Staging Pathology Surgical Treatment
Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy Ongoing Research

28 Key Points Diagnostic Work-up for Staging Endoscopy with biopsies
Endorectal ultrasound: T1 vs T2 tumors vs borderline T3 Multislice-CT is not sufficiently accurate for low tumors CT cannot accurately distinguish LFN+ vs LFN- Phased Array MRI is highly accurate in Staging Difficulty in differentiation T1 vs T2 vs borderline T3 Circumferential Resection Margin (CRM): MRI is highly accurate for the prediction of CRM MRI with specific contrast enhanced (USPIO):promising FDG-PET:disappointing results on N; role in response evaluation

31 The Value of CRM

32 Macroscopic assessment of Mesorectal excision
CRM ( cm ) % incomplete < % % % % > %

33 Criterion for detection of node metastases
No choice but to use the size of lymph nodes as the most reliable criterion In most cases, 5mm or larger, or 10mm or larger is regarded as criterion for lymph node metastases. 33

34 Metastatic nodes: less than Ø 5mm in > 50%

36 Key Points Pathology Guideline and experience significantly improve the quality:www.rcpath.org/resources/pdf/colorectalcancer.pdf Careful Macroscopic and Microscopic examination Tumor Regression Grade (TRG) scales

37 Tumor-Regression-Grading: TRG
Complete Regression (100%) Good Regression (> 50%) Moderate Regression (25-50%) Minimal Regression (< 25) No Regression (0%)

38 Key Points Surgical Treatment downsizing involvement
The standard surgery: Total Mesorectal Excision (TME) Preop Radio-chemoterapy + S: increase sphincter preservation (with good sphincter function) for downsizing Pathological studies of CRM in anorectal junction and anal canal sphincter show higher rates of CRM involvement

39 Key Points Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy
Early T: local excision (adverse prognostic factors evaluation); endoluminal radiotherapy c T3-4/N0 or plus: 15 Random Trials & 3 Meta-analysis: increase LC; conflicting results in SVV for preop Radiotherapy Short-Course preop (5Gyx5) vs RT-CT: not seem effective for pts with predictive positive CRM e low tumor location 2 Random Trials (EORTC & FFCD 9203) on role of chemo with preop-Radiotherapy: in RT-CT preop group increase of LC, increase rate of p T0, G3+ tox, no benefit of 5 yrs OS

40 Key Points Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy
Polish Trial in c T3-4: 5 Gy x 5 vs preop RT-CT: no difference in sphincter preservation, LC, OS but LATE TOXICITY NCI Consensus Conference 1990: post-op CT-RT 5FU-based Standard treatment in post-op p T3/ p N1-2 rectal tumors Preop RT-CT vs Post-op RT-CT 5FU-based: 4 Random Trials.

45 Key Points Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy
No data with level 1 evidence for adjuvant post-op chemo after preoperative RT-CT: it seems an effect of adjuvant chemo in responder pts Unresectable rectal cancer: pre-op RT-CT 5FU-based to enhance R0 resectability (50-54 Gy Radiation dose) IORT: single institutions studies support a favourable effect Local Recurrence: pre-op RT-CT +/- IORT (conflicting results); Re-irradiation is under clinical evaluation

46 Key Points Ongoing Research
Topic for surgical research: enhance organ preservation Intensification of pre-op RT-CT and post-op chemo: - New Drugs (Oxaliplatin; Capecitabine) - Altered fractionation RT dose EGFR and VEGF: promising targets of antitumor treatment Individualised therapies based on clinical-pathological features and molecular and genetic markers New Imaging for response evaluation
