  • a Tumor-node-metastasis classification according to the UICC (36) . Adenocarcinomas of the GEJ are classified as gastric cardia. It is important to note that in this classification distal oesophageal adenocarcinomas are relatively overrated in comparison with gastric cancers.

  • b Obtained from the European Collection of Animal Cell Cultures.

  • c Derived from a regional lymph node metastasis.
