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)
Gastric cancer is the second most common cause of cancer death worldwide. It is estimated that 5-10% of gastric cancer cases have a familial association; however, knowledge concerning the clinical, pathological features and prognosis to familial gastric cancer is currently limited. To our best knowledge, this is the largest number of single center patients(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 The 7th UICC N stage may be unsuitable for remnant gastric cancer (RGC) because the original disease and previous operation usually cause abnormal lymphatic drainage. However, the prognostic significance of the current TNM staging system in RGC has not been studied. METHODS Prospective data from 153 RGC patients who underwent curative(More)
BACKGROUND The prognostic importance of tumor size in gastric cancer is unclear. This study investigated whether the inclusion of tumor size could improve prognostic accuracy in node-negative gastric cancer. METHODS Clinical and pathological data of 492 patients with node-negative gastric cancer who underwent radical surgery in our department from January(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)
BACKGROUND The present study introduced a modified delta-shaped gastroduodenostomy (DSG) technique and assessed the safety, feasibility and clinical results of this procedure in patients undergoing totally laparoscopic distal gastrectomy (TLDG) for gastric cancer (GC). MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 102 patients with distal GC undergoing TLDG with(More)
BACKGROUND To evaluate the prevalence of the accessory left hepatic artery (ALHA; defined as a vessel arising from the left gastric artery, which, together with a typical left hepatic artery, supplies blood to the left lobe of the liver) and its short-term clinical implications in patients undergoing radical gastrectomy for gastric cancer. METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVE 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). METHODS We performed a case-control and case-matched study enrolling 642 patients with GC undergoing laparoscopic distal gastrectomy with Billroth-I anastomosis(More)
BACKGROUND Laparoscopic spleen-preserving Splenic hilar lymphadenectomy (LSPL) is required in laparoscopy-assisted total gastrectomy for advanced proximal gastric cancer. However, it is considerably difficult and risk in clinical practice. Thus, we explore the application of LSPL performed by following the perigastric fascias and the intrafascial space in(More)
