One of the most widespread oncological diseases (second place after the lung cancer) is the gastric cancer, which remains one of the leading causes of cancer-related deaths, even though its incidence is decreasing and there are newly available treatment options. Bleeding is a relatively common phenomenon in patients with solid neoplasms, occurring in up to 10% of all patients in advanced stages of cancer. Management of bleeding in case of advanced stages of gastric cancer remains a complicated surgical problem. This article describes a case of stepwise treatment of a patient with locally advanced gastric cancer, complicated by relapsing hemorrhage in the setting of multi-specialty hospital, highlighting the importance of multidisciplinary team work.

Key words: gastric cancer; hemorrhage; embolization; gastrectomy
