A few years ago, a 65-years-old gentleman was referred for the endoscopic treatment of gastric hyperplastic polyp. During the endoscopic polypectomy procedure, I found a shallow depressed lesion. Endoscopic biopsy for this lesion was P/D tubular adenocarcinoma. Subtotal gastrectomy was done, and it was 32mm sized mucosal cancer without lymph node metastasis.
환자가 모처럼 내시경 검사를 위하여 6년 만에 제 외래를 찾아오셨습니다. 감사하다는 말씀을 하셨는데, 나름 뿌듯했습니다.
