Purpose: Tumor deposits (TDs) are defined as satellite peritumoral nodules in the peritumoral adipose tissue of a primary carcinoma without histologic evidence of residual lymph node in the nodule. We aimed to investigate the relation between TDs and clinicopathological characteristics of gastric cancer and to evaluate the effect of TDs on prognosis.
