Abstract

GOMEZ ZULETA, Martín Alonso et al. Clinical Practice Guideline for Diagnostics, Prevention and Management for early Gastric Cancer - 2015. Rev Col Gastroenterol [online]. 2015, vol.30, suppl.1, pp.34-42. ISSN 0120-9957.

Objective: To provide an evidence-based clinical practice guideline for detection, diagnosis and treatment of early gastric cancer considering the efficacy and safety and interventions for patients, caregivers, administrative and government bodies at all levels of care in Colombia. Materials and Methods: This guide was developed by a multidisciplinary team with the support of the Colombian Association of Gastroenterology, Cochrane STI Group and Clinical Research Institute of the Universidad Nacional de Colombia. Relevant clinical questions were developed and the search for national and international guidelines in databases was performed. Existing guidelines were evaluated quality and usability. None of the guidelines met criteria for adaptation, so the group decided to develop a de novo guideline. Systematic literature searches were conducted by Cochrane STI. The tables of evidence and recommendations were developed based on the GRADE approach. Results: A Clinical Practice Guidelines for the detection, diagnosis and treatment of early gastric cancer was developed for the Colombian context. Conclusions: The opportune detection and appropriate management of premalignant and malignant lesions of early gastric cancer would impact the burden of the disease.
