Laparoscopically assisted total gastrectomy (LATG) is technically difficult. Robot surgery has theoretical advantages such as increased degrees of freedom of instruments and a three-dimensional view. The current study aimed to determine whether a robot-assisted total gastrectomy (RATG) has a real benefit over LATG in terms of surgical and oncologic outcomes. A single-center case–control study was conducted. The study included 36 patients who underwent RATG and 65 patients who underwent LATG at… CONTINUE READING
