Abstract

The gastric cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death worldwide. Surgery remains the most important and curative treatment of gastric cancer. Most of them are locally advanced at diagnosis and neoadjuvant chemotherapy should improve the resectability. We report our experience in management of unresectable locally gastric cancer.
