Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Short-term result(Histological complete resection,complication) [ Time Frame: within the first 7 days after ESD ]
  • The incidence of reoccurrence and Ectopic foci [ Time Frame: within the first 7 days and 3months, 6months, 1year, 2years, 3years, 4years and 5years after ESD ]
  • The quality of life after ESD [ Time Frame: before and 7 days, 3months, 6months after ESD ]
  • The costs of ESD [ Time Frame: From the admission to discharge ]
  • The safety of ESD procedure [ Time Frame: within the 7 days, 3months, 6months, 1year, 2years, 3years, 4years and 5years after ESD ]

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection
Single-arm for ESD procedure and retrospective surgical procedure(Laparoscopy, Open surgery)data collection
Procedure: Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection
5-years follow-up after Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection

Detailed Description:

Traditionally open-gastrectomy is the standard treatment for gastric cancer without distant metastasis, but high mortality and morbidity, the intense weight loss, food intake difficulties after surgery are fraught, including problems with the drawback of significantly degrading the quality of life. Therefore, a lot of effort to seek the more simple treatment than open gastrectomy has been made, recently the endoscopic treatment for early gastric cancer is the most widely used treatment.

This single-arm, multi-center study enroll early gastric cancer patients after ESD compared with the retrospective control(surgical treatment) group considering the unreality of the randomized clinical trials. In addition, the quality of life assessment by the EORTC C30/STO22 tools before and after ESD procedure in enrolled patients will be performed and the direct cost analysis also will be conducted.
