The Depth from the Skin to the Celiac Artery Measured Using Computed Tomography is a Simple Predictive Index for Longer Operation Time During Laparoscopic Distal Gastrectomy

Body mass index (BMI) is commonly used to classify obesity. However, BMI does not always reflect the degree of visceral fat. This study aimed to clarify the usefulness of measuring the depth from the skin to the celiac artery using computed tomography, as a simple predictive index for longer operation time during laparoscopic distal gastrectomy (LDG).
