Abstract

BARCHI, Leandro Cardoso  and  CONSENSUS et al. II BRAZILIAN CONSENSUS ON GASTRIC CANCER BY THE BRAZILIAN GASTRIC CANCER ASSOCIATION. ABCD, arq. bras. cir. dig. [online]. 2020, vol.33, n.2, e1514.  Epub Aug 24, 2020. ISSN 2317-6326.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/0102-672020190001e1514.

Background:

Since the publication of the first Brazilian Consensus on Gastric Cancer (GC) in 2012 carried out by the Brazilian Gastric Cancer Association, new concepts on diagnosis, staging, treatment and follow-up have been incorporated.

Aim:

This new consensus is to promote an update to professionals working in the fight against GC and to provide guidelines for the management of patients with this condition.

Methods:

Fifty-nine experts answered 67 statements regarding the diagnosis, staging, treatment and prognosis of GC with five possible alternatives: 1) fully agree; 2) partially agree; 3) undecided; 4) disagree and 5) strongly disagree A consensus was adopted when at least 80% of the sum of the answers “fully agree” and “partially agree” was reached. This article presents only the responses of the participating experts. Comments on each statement, as well as a literature review, will be presented in future publications.

Results:

Of the 67 statements, there was consensus in 50 (74%). In 10 declarations, there was 100% agreement.

Conclusion:

The gastric cancer treatment has evolved considerably in recent years. This consensus gathers consolidated principles in the last decades, new knowledge acquired recently, as well as promising perspectives on the management of this disease.
