Robot-assisted gastrectomy (RAG) for gastric cancer is still a controversial surgical technique for adequate tumor resection, lymphadenectomy, and postoperative outcome. A meta-analysis analyzed updated clinical trials that have compared RAG with laparoscopy-assisted gastrectomy (LAG) to evaluate whether RAG is equivalent to LAG. Eight studies were included(More)
BACKGROUND Systemic chemotherapy (SC) is the recommended treatment for gastric cancer with liver metastasis. However, the improvement in survival has been disappointing. The aim of this study was to compare the therapeutic efficacy of gastrectomy with transarterial chemoembolization plus SC (GTC) and SC alone for gastric cancer with synchronous liver(More)
Leucine-rich repeat-containing G protein-coupled receptor 5 (Lgr5), a marker of adult stem cells and cancer stem cells, plays important roles in tumor progression. Furthermore, Lgr5 also contributes to chemoradiotherapy resistance. However, the function of Lgr5 in the prediction of preoperative chemotherapy efficacy has not been reported. We evaluated the(More)
AIM To evaluate the effect of bursectomy on overall survival, recurrence-free survival and safety of patients with gastric cancer by performing a meta-analysis. METHODS A literature search was performed in PubMed, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Library databases for clinical research that compared bursectomy with non-bursectomy published before October 2013.(More)
Circulating miRNAs gains popularity for its potential ability to serve as biomarkers of cancer. The aim of present study was to evaluate the usefulness of plasma miR-214 as novel biomarkers for gastric cancer (GC) detection. Attempts were made to address several pitfalls in sample processing and study design in previous studies. We conducted a two-step(More)
MiR-200c expression is dysregulated in various malignancies and may predict the survival of patients with cancer, although the results of different studies conflict. Therefore, we conducted a meta-analysis to resolve this discrepancy. We queried the PubMed and Embase using multiple search strategies. Data were extracted from studies comparing overall(More)
BACKGROUND Gastrojejunostomy (GJJ) and endoscopic stenting (ES) are palliative treatments for gastric outlet obstruction (GOO) caused by gastric cancer. We compared the outcomes of GJJ with ES by performing a meta-analysis. METHODS Clinical trials that compared GJJ with ES for the treatment of GOO in gastric cancer were included in the meta-analysis.(More)
