AIM To analyze the factors influencing the prognosis of patients with gastric cancer after surgical treatment, in order to optimize the surgical procedures. METHODS A retrospective study of 2 613 consecutive patients with gastric cancer was performed. Of these patients, 2,301 (88.1%) received operations; 196 explorative laparotomy (EL), 130 by-pass(More)
BACKGROUND The application of laparoscopic surgery for advanced gastric cancer (AGC) remains questionable on account of technical difficulty of D2 lymphadenectomy, and there has been few large-scale follow-up results regarding the oncological adequacy of laparoscopic surgery compared with that of open surgeries for AGC. The aim of this study is to evaluate(More)
BACKGROUND Gastric cancer is a common malignancy worldwide and a common cause of death from cancer. Despite recent advances in multimodality treatment and targeted therapy, complete resection remains the only treatment that can lead to cure. This study was devised to investigate the technical feasibility, safety and oncologic efficacy of(More)
To evaluate the safety, feasibility and clinical results of the modified delta-shaped gastroduodenostomy (MDSG) in totally laparoscopic distal gastrectomy (TLDG) for gastric cancer (GC). We performed a case–control and case-matched study enrolling 642 patients with GC undergoing laparoscopic distal gastrectomy with Billroth-I anastomosis from January 2011(More)
BACKGROUND To explore the safety and feasibility of the transorally inserted anvil (OrVil) in laparoscopy-assisted total gastrectomy for gastric cancer. METHODS From December 2010 to June 2011, a total of 28 patients underwent laparoscopy-assisted total gastrectomy with a Roux-en-Y-esophagojejunostomy anastomosis with OrVil. Perioperative treatments,(More)
BACKGROUND Many patients with gastric gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) and synchronous gastric cancer have been described, most in single case studies. We retrospectively investigated the clinicopathologic features and prognostic effects of gastric GIST in patients with synchronous gastric cancer. METHODS The study enrolled 170 patients with gastric(More)
AIM To investigate the long-term effect of the number of resected lymph nodes (LNs) on the prognosis of patients with node-negative gastric cancer. METHODS Clinical data of 211 patients with gastric cancer, without nodal involvement, were analyzed retrospectively after D2 radical operation. We analyzed the relationship between the number of resected LNs(More)
BACKGROUND A few studies have investigated the outcome of palliative total gastrectomy (PTG) in stage IV proximal gastric cancer. In this study, we tried to summarize the outcome of PTG in stage IV proximal gastric cancer. METHODS Between January 1991 and January 2005, complete clinical data of 197 patients with stage IV proximal gastric cancer undergoing(More)
A scoring system allows risk stratification of morbidity might be helpful for selecting risk-adapted interventions to improve surgical safety. Few studies have been designed to develop scoring systems to predict SSIs after laparoscopic gastrectomy for gastric cancer. We analyzed the records of 2364 patients who underwent laparoscopic gastrectomy for gastric(More)
To validate the efficacy and safety of laparoscopic total gastrectomy (LTG) for advanced gastric cancer (AGC). Laparoscopic distal gastrectomy (LDG) in the treatment of patients with local AGC is becoming increasingly popular, and there have been several multicenter randomized controlled trials focused on this treatment. However, few reports on the(More)
