Statement 18: Frozen section evaluation of the surgical margins is recommended especially for cancers of the esophagogastric junction
. While 5-cm clear surgical margins are expected for gastric tumors located in the corpus and antrum, achieving tumor-free margins is adequate depending on the type of surgery in esophagogastric tumors (total esophagectomy, distal esophagectomy with proximal gastrectomy, or a total gastrectomy).
pylori in gastric mucosa has a protective activity on the esophagogastric junction
in BE (19).

(AEG) after gastric tube anastomosis.Methods: From January 2009 to December 2011, eighty-seven patients with Types II and III AEG were selected for gastric tube reconstruction after proximal gastrectomy.
In spite of the decreasing incidence of gastric cancer in many countries, the last four decades have seen an increase in cases of cancer arising in the cardia, accompanying an increase in the incidence of adenocarcinomas at the esophagogastric junction
and at the distal esophagus, especially in male, white patients.
