Objective: To perform a meta-analysis comparing laparoscopic versus open gastrectomy (LG vs. OG) for early gastric cancer (EGC) in Asia. Methods: PubMed, Embase, CINAHL, AMED, the Cochrane database of Systematic Reviews, the Cochrane Controlled Trials Register, and the China National Knowledge Infrastructure electronic databases were systematically searched for studies published between January 1, 1992 and July 1, 2012. A series of clinical indices, including operative time, incision length… 
Long-term Survival Outcomes of Laparoscopic Versus Open Gastrectomy for Gastric Cancer: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
TLDR
Current knowledge indicates that the long-term survival outcome of laparoscopic Gastric cancer surgery is comparable to that of open surgery among early or advanced stage gastric cancer patients, and LG is acceptable with regard to oncologic safety.
Long-term clinical outcomes of laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy versus open distal gastrectomy for early gastric cancer
TLDR
In the treatment of EGC, LADG lowered the rate of long- and short-term complications and promoted earlier recovery, with comparable oncological outcomes to ODG.
Laparoscopic versus opengastric surgery for the treatment of pathological T1N0M0 gastric cancer in elderly patients: a matched study
TLDR
LAP is an acceptable alternative to OP in elderly patients with early gastric cancer, and the intraoperative and postoperative complications, local recurrence, and metastasis didn’t show statistically significant differences between groups.
Surgical interventions for gastric cancer: a review of systematic reviews.
TLDR
The improvement of methodological quality and reporting was necessary for primary studies, and the superiority of laparoscopic over open surgery was demonstrated, but concordance on other surgical interventions was rare, which needed more well-designed RCTs and systematic reviews.
Comparison of robotic- and laparoscopic-assisted gastrectomy in advanced gastric cancer: updated short- and long-term results
TLDR
Although there were some differences in the outcomes of RAG versus LAG in AGC patients, both RAG and LAG were similar in short-term recovery and long-term oncological outcomes.
Laparoscopic gastrectomy for gastric cancer: current evidences.
Postoperative chemoradiotherapy vs. preoperative chemoradiotherapy for locally advanced (operable) gastric cancer: clarifying the role and technique of radiotherapy.
TLDR
The definition and optimal surgery for locally advanced gastric cancer is discussed, followed by the general principles when considering a pre vs. postoperative radiotherapy (RT) strategy, and a synthesis of the existing randomized trial evidence is provided in an attempt to clarify the role of pre and postoperative RT in the management of locally advanced Gastric cancer.

Meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials on laparoscopic gastrectomy vs. open gastrectomy for distal gastric cancer.
TLDR
Considering its lower morbidity and enhanced postoperative recovery, LG is a safe technical alternative to OG for distal gastric cancer.
Laparoscopic Versus Open Gastrectomy With D2 Lymph Node Dissection for Gastric Cancer: A Meta-analysis
TLDR
The results of this meta-analysis suggest that LGD2 results in less blood loss and postoperative complications and also less pain and faster bowel function recovery, with similar harvested lymph nodes and overall survival rate comparing to OGD2.
Laparoscopic Versus Open Distal Gastrectomy for Gastric Cancer: A Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials and High-Quality Nonrandomized Studies
TLDR
LDG can be performed safely with a shorter hospital stay and fewer complications than open surgery, and lymph node staging appears to be unaffected.
A randomized controlled trial comparing open vs laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy for the treatment of early gastric cancer: an interim report.
TLDR
This study demonstrates that LADG has several advantages including an earlier recovery, less pain, and less impaired pulmonary function after gastric surgery when compared with ODG; furthermore, no reduction in curability was observed.

TLDR
In terms of resulting in fewer pulmonary complications while maintaining the curability of EGC, LADG has a clear advantage over its open counterpart.
Totally Laparoscopic Radical BII Gastrectomy for the Treatment of Gastric Cancer: A Comparison With Open Surgery
TLDR
Although totally laparoscopic BII gastrectomy using the upper to lower technique required a longer surgical time and was technically more demanding than conventional open surgery, it resulted in shorter recovery time, less analgesic use, and less severe physical discomfort without compromising the operative curability and oncologic outcomes.
Prospective randomized study of open versus laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy with extraperigastric lymph node dissection for early gastric cancer
TLDR
The findings show that LADG with extraperigastric lymph node dissection is a safe and less invasive alternative to the open procedure.
Efficacy of laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy for gastric cancer in the elderly
TLDR
LADG is an effective treatment for elderly patients with early gastric cancer if it is performed by an experienced surgeon and a high-volume study is needed to confirm this rationale.
Short-term outcomes of laparoscopic-assisted distal gastrectomy for gastric cancer during a surgeon’s learning curve period
TLDR
Although LADG was more time consuming than ODG, it was a feasible, safe procedure that accomplished the oncological requirements and led to faster postoperative recovery, but should be performed carefully to prevent unexpected complications.
