BACKGROUND The relationship between preoperative body mass index (BMI) and the survival of postoperative gastric cancer patients is not clear. Furthermore, the survival impact with postoperative BMI is not known, even though weight loss is inevitable after gastrectomy. METHODS Patients who underwent gastrectomy for gastric cancer between 2000 and 2008 were included in the study (n = 1909). Patients were divided into three groups based on their BMIs: low (<18.5 kg/m(2)), normal (18.5-24.9 kg/m… CONTINUE READING
