Clinical significance of No. 10 and 11 lymph nodes posterior to the splenic vessel in D2 radical total gastrectomy

Abstract

D2 lymphadenectomy is widely performed for advanced proximal gastric cancer, but complete dissection of No. 10 and 11 lymph nodes (LNs) is technically challenging, especially for those posterior to the splenic vessel.
