Figure 2 Case 1, minimally invasive endoscopic resection of T2 gastric cancer (endoscopic submucosal dissection and full-thickness resection) and pathology. A and B: Protuberant lesion on the greater curvature of the anterior wall of the gastric antrum, about 2.0 cm × 2.0 cm. The resection area was marked 1.5 cm outside the edge of the lesion, then endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) was performed along the outside of the marked point; C and D: ESD circumferentially peeled to the submucosa, which was thinned and unclear, indicating that the lesion was deeply infiltrated (SM3 or T2). At 0.5-1.0 cm outside the unclear portion of submucosa, the lesion was resected by ESD and full-thickness resection; E: Mucosal surface of resected lesion (3.2 cm × 3.5 cm); F: The serosa of the resected lesion revealed that the area of the resected mucosa (normal mucosa and the mucosa with shallow infiltration) was significantly larger than that of the serosa (location of deep infiltration); G and H: Poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma, infiltrating into the superficial layer of the muscularis propria (red box); scale bar, 500 μm; I: Immunohistochemical staining of cytokeratin expression at location of poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma.
