The purpose of this survey was to ascertain, if possible, our mortality rate in the varied 5-year periods, the duration of illness in those living and those dead, the main complications in the different decades, the primary sites within the stomach, the evaluation of lymph-node involvement, the operations, etc. To be sure, our series is not a large one, and it cannot be compared with those in the clinics such as the ones in Minnesota, New York, Boston, and other cities, but a knowledge of what is happening in the Albany Medical Center Hospital seemed to be worthwhile.This series comprises all cases of patients with carcinoma of the stomach who have been admitted to the Albany Medical Center Hospital during the years 1935-1958, inclusive. The total number of cases was 462–361 operative and 77 nonoperative, not including those discovered at autopsy.In approaching this subject for review,
