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 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)
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)
To date, it has been unclear whether laparoscopic-assisted total gastrectomy (LTG) was a suitable treatment for elderly patients (aged 65 years and older) with gastric cancer. The aim of the present study was to clarify the value of LTG in the elderly using a propensity score matching method. We prospectively collected data from 675 elderly gastric cancer(More)
Laparoscopic spleen-preserving total gastrectomy (LSPTG) for gastric cancer is only performed at a few specialized institutions and carries the risk of major perioperative complications (MPCs) that may require reoperation and impair recovery. However, the predictors of such events remain largely unknown. Prospectively collected data from 325 consecutive(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 Laparoscopic gastrectomy (LG) for gastric cancer has increased in popularity due to advances in surgical techniques. The aim of this study is to validate the efficacy and safety of laparoscopic gastrectomy for gastric cancer compared with open gastrectomy (OG). METHODS The study comprised 3,580 patients who were treated with curative intent(More)
AIM To evaluate the safety and feasibility of a modified delta-shaped gastroduodenostomy (DSG) in totally laparoscopic distal gastrectomy (TLDG). METHODS We performed a case-control study enrolling 63 patients with distal gastric cancer (GC) undergoing TLDG with a DSG from January 2013 to June 2013. Twenty-two patients underwent a conventional DSG(More)
Laparoscopic gastrectomy with D2 lymph node (LN) dissection has not yet been widely adopted for advanced gastric cancer because it is technically complicated. Due to the high suprapancreatic lymph nodes metastasis rate (LMR) and the various vascular anatomies, the suprapancreatic LN dissection is a crucial and demanding procedure for radical resection of(More)
