Abstract

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) have an annual incidence of approximately 8000–9000 cases in Europe and 4000–5000 cases in the USA even if several autoptic studies registered higher incidences. The median age of onset is approximately 60 years without a clear gender predilection. The 60% of GISTs are located in the stomach. The aim of this study is to describe the clinical characteristics and to define the appropriate surgical management of gastric GISTs.
