Abstract

Background

Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is accepted as a standard treatment in patients with early gastric cancer (EGC) who have a negligible risk of lymph node metastasis. The aim of this study was to compare the short-term and long-term outcomes between ESD and surgery in patients with EGC that fulfilled the expanded indication of ESD on their final pathologic report.

Methods

We reviewed the clinical data of patients who underwent gastric ESD and surgery between January 2007 and December 2012. Patients with pathologically confirmed EGC that fulfilled the expanded indication of ESD on their final pathologic report were analyzed.

Results

Among 2023 patients, 817 (40.4%) underwent ESD and 1206 (59.6%) underwent surgery. The proportion of cases meeting the absolute indication was significantly higher in the ESD group than in the surgery group (66.0 vs. 26.2%). Lesions on the middle third, >3 cm in size, flat or depressed, and of undifferentiated histology were significantly more common in the surgery group than in the ESD group. The ESD group showed lower acute complication rates [8.1% (66 of 817) vs. 18.1% (218 of 1206), P ≤ 0.001] and procedure-related mortality [0 vs. 0.3% (4 of 1206), P = 0.153] than the surgical group. The annual incidence of recurrent gastric cancer was 2.18% in the ESD group and 0.19% in the surgery group. The 5-year overall and disease-specific survival rates were not significantly different between the ESD group and the surgery group (overall survival: 96.4 vs. 97.2%, P = 0.423; disease-specific survival: 99.6 vs. 99.2%, P = 0.203).

Conclusions

Although EGC lesions had poorer features in the surgery group than in the ESD group, ESD was comparable to surgery for EGCs that fulfilled the expanded indication of ESD, with lower rates of acute complication and comparable overall survival.
