Improving the Endoscopic Detection Rate in Patients with Early Gastric Cancer.

Moon HS - Clin Endosc (2015)

Bottom Line: Endoscopists should ideally possess both sufficient knowledge of the endoscopic gastrointestinal disease findings and an appropriate attitude.Before performing endoscopy, the endoscopist must identify several risk factors of gastric cancer, including the patient's age, comorbidities, and drug history, a family history of gastric cancer, previous endoscopic findings of atrophic gastritis or intestinal metaplasia, and a history of previous endoscopic treatments.During endoscopic examination, the macroscopic appearance is very important for the diagnosis of early gastric cancer; therefore, the endoscopist should have a consistent and organized endoscope processing technique and the ability to comprehensively investigate the entire stomach, even blind spots.

Figure 3: Endoscopic finding of the depressed lesion type in early gastric cancer.

Mentions: Depressed lesions, such as erosions and ulcers, show a variety of types ranging from those that are definite to those that are not. Deep depressions, those accompanied by definite elevations, and clear-colored lesions are easily observed. A characteristically depressed lesion can be accompanied by converging folds, which can show abrupt cutting, clubbing, fusion, or a rat-tail appearance (Figs. 3, 4).
