All eligible studies comparing robotic gastrectomy versus laparoscopic gastrectomy or(More)
PURPOSE Minimally invasive gastrectomy (MIG), including laparoscopic distal subtotal gastrectomy (LDG) and robotic distal subtotal gastrectomy (RDG), is performed for gastric cancer, and requires a learning period. However, there are few reports regarding MIG by a beginner surgeon trained in MIG for gastric cancer during surgical residency and fellowship.(More)
PURPOSE Roux-en-Y reconstruction (RY) in laparoscopic distal gastrectomy for gastric cancer is a more complicated procedure than Billroth-I (BI) or Billroth-II. Here, we offer a totally laparoscopic simple RY using linear staplers. MATERIALS AND METHODS Each 50 consecutive patients with totally laparoscopic distal gastrectomy with RY and BI were enrolled(More)
