We read with great interest the article by Memon and coworkers reporting the outcome of a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trial evaluating the efficacy and drawbacks of limited (D1) versus extended (D2) lymphadenectomy for proven gastric carcinoma. This is a very excellent article; the basic organization of this report is clear and convincing, and the associated conclusions and recommendations are based on a review by investigators with long-standing interest in gastric disorders.

Abstract

We read with great interest the article by Memon and coworkers reporting the outcome of a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trial evaluating the efficacy and drawbacks of limited (D1) versus extended (D2) lymphadenectomy for proven gastric carcinoma. This is a very excellent article; the basic organization of this report is clear and convincing, and the associated conclusions and recommendations are based on a review by investigators with long-standing interest in gastric disorders.
