PURPOSE To compare the oncological outcomes of patients with laparoscopy-assisted gastrectomy with those with open resection to remove nonmetastatic gastric cancer. METHODS A total of 532 patients were initially enrolled. Propensity score matching was applied to assemble a study cohort. The primary objective was overall survival (OS). Cancer-specific survival (CSS) and disease-free survival (DFS) were secondary objectives. RESULTS A total of 388 patients were matched for analysis. The… CONTINUE READING
