Abstract: This thesis focus on the quality assurance in the surgical treatment of gastric cancer. This has been investigated using data of the CRITICS trial. In this randomized clinical patients underwent preoperative chemotherapy, followed by surgery, followed by adjuvant chemotherapy or chemoradiotherapy. Surgical quality in the CRITICS trial was investigated and was excellent (PART I). Furthermore, the influence of hospital volume on surgical quality and survival was analyzed using data of the CRITICS trial (PART II). Surgery performed in hospitals with high hospital volume was associated with better surgical quality and better survival. In part III of this thesis analyses were performed to analyze treatment strategy and survival in patients with resectable gastric cancer and in patients with metastatic gastric cancer.
