Determination of peritoneal lavage tumor marker concentrations in gastric cancer


Gastric cancer remains one of the most lethal malignancies worldwide, with a high capacity of developing peritoneal recurrences. The apparition of peritoneal seeding in the setting of a case diagnosed with gastric cancer represents the most common cause of death. Due to this aspect, researchers’ attention was focused on determining which are the most efficient methods in order to provide an early diagnosis of a possible peritoneal recurrence.
