abstract

  • Patients with gastric or GEJ adenocarcinoma who achieve a pCR following preoperative therapy still have a significant risk of recurrence and cancer-specific death following resection. One third of the recurrences in the pCR group were symptomatic CNS recurrences. Increased awareness of the risk of CNS metastases and selective brain imaging in patients who achieve a pCR following preoperative therapy for gastric/GEJ adenocarcinoma is warranted.
