In contrast, this revision is data driven, based on a risk- adjusted random-survival-forest analysis of worldwide data. The previous system was neither consistent with these data nor biologically plausible. Some explanations for the discrepancy relate to the interplay among T, N, and M, histopathologic type, biologic activity of the tumor (histologic grade), and location. The unique lymphatic anatomy of the esophagus links N to T, permit- ting lymph node metastases from superficial cancers (pT1); this renders prognosis similar to that of more advanced (higher pT) N0 cancers. Simi- larly, advanced cancers (higher pT) with a few positive nodes may have a similar prognosis to those of less advanced cancers (lower pT) with more positive nodes. Biologic activity of the cancer, reflected by histologic grade (G), modulates stage such that prognosis of well-differentiated (G1) higher- pT cancers is similar to that of less well-differentiated (G2–G4) lower-pT cancers. Previous staging recommendations ignored histopathologic type, but availability of data on a large mixture of adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinomas from around the world has permitted assessing the association of histopathologic type with survival. Although at first glance these multiple trade-offs seem to create a less orderly arrangement of cancer classifications within and among stage 130 American Joint Committee on Cancer • 2010

The highest rates of this disease continue to be in areas of Asia and Eastern Europe. Although gastric adenocarcinoma has declined significantly in the USA over the past 70 years, during the early twenty-first century an estimated 22,000 patients develop the disease each year, and of these patients, 13,000 will die, mainly because of nodal and metastatic disease present at the time of initial diagnosis. Trends in survival rates from the 1970s to the 1990s have unfortunately shown very little improvement. During the 1990s, 20% of gastric carcinoma cases were diagnosed while localized to the gastric wall, whereas 30% had evidence of regional nodal disease. Disease resulting from metastasis to other solid organs within the abdomen, as well as to extraab- dominal sites, represents 35% of all cases. Although overall 5-year survival is approximately 15–20%, the 5-year survival is approximately 55% when disease is localized to the stomach (Figure 11.1). The involvement of regional nodes reduces the 5-year survival to approximately 20%. A notable shift in the site of gastric cancer reflects a proportionate increase in disease of the proximal stomach over the past several decades. Previously, there was a predominance of distal gastric cancers presenting as mass lesions or ulceration. Although other malignancies occur in the stomach, approximately 90% of all gastric neoplasms are adenocarcino- mas. Tumors of the esophagogastric junction (EGJ) may be difficult to stage as either a gastric or an esophageal primary, especially in view of the increased incidence of adenocarcinoma in the esophagus that presumably results from acid reflux disease. ANATOMY Primary Site. The stomach is the first division of the abdominal portion of the alimentary tract, beginning at the esophagogastric junction and extend- ing to the pylorus. The proximal stomach is located immediately below the diaphragm and is termed the cardia. The remaining portions are the 146 American Joint Committee on Cancer • 2010

A variety of tumors occur in the small intestine, with approximately 25–50% of the primary malignant tumors being adeno- carcinomas, depending upon the population surveyed. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, approximately 5,600 new cases of cancer involving the small intestine are seen annually in the USA. The 1,100 deaths predicted Small Intestine 12 153

The y prefix is used for those cancers that are classified after neoadjuvant pretreat- ment (e.g., ypTNM). Patients who have a complete pathologic response are ypT0N0cM0 that may be similar to Stage Group 0 or I. The r prefix is to be used for those cancers that have recurred after a disease-free interval (rTNM). *Dukes B is a composite of better (T3 N0 M0) and worse (T4 N0 M0) prognostic groups, as is Dukes C (Any TN1 M0 and Any T N2 M0). MAC is the modi- fied Astler-Coller classification. INTRODUCTION The TNM classification for carcinomas of the colon and rectum provides more detail than other staging systems. Compatible with the Dukes’ sys- tem, the TNM adds greater precision in the identification of prognostic subgroups. TNM staging is based on the depth of tumor invasion into or beyond the wall of the colorectum (T), invasion of or adherence to adjacent organs or structures (T), the number of regional lymph nodes involved (N), and the presence or absence of distant metastasis (M). The TNM classification applies to both clinical and pathologic staging. Most cancers of the colon and many cancers of the rectum are staged after pathologic examination of a resected specimen. However, patients with 174 American Joint Committee on Cancer • 2010

specimens of ascending colon, descending colon, or upper rectum is only partially peritonealized, and the demarcation between the peritonealized surface and the nonperitonealized surface (corresponding to the CRM) of such specimens is not always easily appreciated on pathologic examination. Therefore, the surgeon is encouraged to mark the peritoneal reflection and/ or the area of deepest tumor penetration adjacent to a nonperitonealized surface with a clip or suture so that the pathologist may accurately identify and evaluate the CRM. For mid and distal rectal cancers (subperitoneal location), the entire sur- face of the resection specimen corresponds to a CRM (anterior, posterior, medial, lateral). For proximal rectal or retroperitoneal colon cancers (ascend- ing, descending, possibly cecum), surgically dissected margins will include those that lie in a retroperitoneal or subperitoneal location as described above (Figure 14.3). For segments of the colon that are entirely covered by a visceral peritoneum (transverse, sigmoid, possibly cecum), the only speci- men margin that is surgically dissected is the mesenteric margin, unless the cancer is adherent to or invading an adjacent organ or structure. Therefore, for cancers of the cecum, transverse or sigmoid colon that extends to the cut edge of the mesentery, assignment of a positive CRM is appropriate. For rectal cancer, the quality of the surgical technique is likely a key factor in the success of surgical outcomes relative to local recurrence and possibly long-term survival. Numerous nonrandomized studies have dem- onstrated that total mesorectal excision (TME) with adequate surgical clearance around the penetrating edge of the tumor decreases the rate of local relapse. The TME technique entails precise sharp dissection within the areolar plane of loose connective tissue outside (lateral to) the visceral mesorectal fascia in order to remove the rectum. With this approach, all mesorectal soft tissues encasing the rectum, which includes the mesentery 14 FIGURE 14.3. Circumferential resection margin. Colon and Rectum 193

15 FIGURE 15.1. Anatomic subsites of the anal canal. Determination of the anatomic site of origin of carcinomas that over- lap the anorectal junction may be problematic. For staging purposes, such tumors should be classified as rectal cancers if their epicenter is located more than 2 cm proximal to the dentate line or proximal to the anorectal ring on digital examination and as anal canal cancers if their epicenter is 2 cm or less from the dentate line. For rectal cancers that extend beyond the dentate line, as for anal canal cancers, the superficial inguinal lymph nodes are among the regional nodal groups at risk of metastatic spread and included in cN/pN analysis (see later). Regional Lymph Nodes. Lymphatic drainage and nodal involvement of anal cancers depend on the location of the primary tumor. Tumors above the dentate line spread primarily to the anorectal, perirectal, and paraverte- bral nodes, whereas tumors below the dentate line spread primarily to the superficial inguinal nodes. The regional lymph nodes are as follows (Figure 15.2): Perirectal Anorectal Perirectal Lateral sacral Internal iliac (hypogastric) Inguinal Superficial All other nodal groups represent sites of distant metastasis. Metastatic Sites. Cancers of the anus may metastasize to any organs, but the liver and lungs are the distal organs that are most frequently involved. Involvement of the abdominal cavity is not unusual. Anus 209
