The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of the prognostic nutritional index (PNI) on the long-term outcomes in gastric cancer patients. This study reviewed the medical records of 548 patients with gastric cancer who underwent gastrectomy. The PNI was calculated as 10 × serum albumin (g/dl) + 0.005 × total lymphocyte count (per mm3). The receiver(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation between intraoperative anastomotic troubles and the incidence of esophagojejunal anastomotic leakage (EJAL), and to identify risk factors for EJAL after elective gastrectomy for gastric cancer. This study reviewed the medical and surgical records of 327 patients who underwent elective gastrectomy(More)
The aim of this study was to identify the risk factors for surgical site infections (SSIs) after elective gastrectomy. This study reviewed the medical records of 842 patients who underwent elective gastrectomy. Multivariate analyses were performed to determine the risk factors for SSIs. Superficial incisional, deep incisional, and organ/space SSIs were(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of being underweight on the long-term outcomes of gastric cancer patients. This study reviewed the medical records of 638 patients with gastric cancer who underwent gastrectomy between January 2003 and December 2011. The patients were divided into three groups according to the WHO classification:(More)
Solitary fibrous tumors (SFTs) are uncommon neoplasms of mesenchymal origin that usually arise from the pleura. SFTs of the abdominal wall are extremely rare, and only 12 cases have been reported in the Englishlanguage literature. This report presents a new case of SFT of the abdominal wall in a 74-year-old female. Positron emission tomography demonstrated(More)
Postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) is one of the major complications after laparoscopic gastrectomy (LG). We investigated the impact of the anatomical location of the pancreas, especially in relation to the suprapancreatic lymph nodes, on the incidence of POPF after LG. We retrospectively reviewed the preoperative computed tomography (CT) images of 246(More)
Pylorus-preserving nearly total gastrectomy (PPNTG) is a function-preserving gastrectomy for treating proximal early gastric cancer that prevents rapid gastric emptying and reflux. In this report, we present a surgical technique for performing laparoscopy-assisted PPNTG (LAPPNTG). The resection of the stomach was similar to that during conventional total(More)
The incidence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) is increasing, which might be an obstacle to various aspects of gastric cancer treatment, such as perisurgical management and postsurgical follow-up. The present study aimed to evaluate the short- and long-term surgical outcomes following gastrectomy in patients with CKD. We retrospectively analyzed surgical(More)
The clinical outcome of malignant biliary obstruction caused by metastatic gastric cancer remains unclear. This study was designed to evaluate the clinical outcome and predictive factors of survival in patients who underwent percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD) for malignant biliary obstruction caused by metastatic gastric cancer. Between April(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The utility of prophylactic splenectomy in patients with proximal third gastric carcinoma is controversial. In this study, we investigated the significance of nodal involvement in the splenic hilum and the impact of splenectomy. METHODOLOGY A total of 129 patients who underwent D2 radical resection with splenectomy for gastric carcinoma(More)
