In both advanced and early gastric cancer with preoperatively suspected lymph node metastasis, extended lymph node dissection is needed to achieve R0. Since extended lymph node dissection is difficult to perform laparoscopically, few reports have reported long-term outcomes in large numbers of patients. The purpose of this study was to investigate oncologic… CONTINUE READING
