Quan Wang, Qingrong Ni, Kelu Yang, Sheqing Ji, Yong Fan, Chen Wang, Wenbin Zhang, Su Yan, Qi Ma, Qiuya Wei, Di Zhang, Juan Yu, Gang Ji
Gastric cancer is the third most common cause of cancer-related deaths and is the fifth highest incidence of cancer worldwide, especially in Eastern Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, and South America. Currently, surgery is the only curative treatment for gastric cancer; however, digestive tract reconstruction after distal gastrectomy for gastric cancer is controversial due to the postoperative complications such as reflux gastritis. There is an increasing trend toward laparoscopic uncut Roux-en-Y (URY) for radical gastrectomy...

INTRODUCTION: Although endoscopic resection for early gastric cancer is well established, anatomical resection with regional lymphadenectomy is recommended for lesions at high risk for occult lymph node metastasis (e.g., lymphovascular invasion, poor grade, and deep submucosal invasion). However, 75-95% high-risk early gastric cancer (HR-EGC) patients ultimately have node-negative disease and could potentially have undergone organ-sparing resection. Due to the inadequacy of standard modalities to reliably rule out nodal metastases in HR-EGC patients, sentinel lymph node (SLN) sampling was developed in Asia with promising results...

Laparoscopic gastrectomy for gastric cancer is now widely accepted and has become a standard surgery. This study investigated the advantages of three-dimensional (3D) stereoscopic visualization for laparoscopic gastrectomy over a conventional two-dimensional (2D) planar screen. The primary outcome of this study was operative time. Ninety-four consecutive cases of gastric cancer patients who underwent laparoscopic total gastrectomy (LTG) (25 cases) or laparoscopic distal gastrectomy (LDG) (69 cases) were enrolled in this study before and after the introduction of the 3D system...

BACKGROUND: Robotic systems recently have been introduced to overcome technical limitations of conventional laparoscopic gastrectomy, especially for complex procedures [1]. We developed a set of procedural operation steps for robotic spleen-preserving splenic hilar lymphadenectomy, which is difficult and recommended in D2 lymph node (LN) dissection during total gastrectomy [2-4]. METHODS: The robotic operative procedures of splenic hilar lymphadenectomy using the da Vinci® Si system were demonstrated in a step-by-step manner, with technical tips for each step, in the video clip...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Remnant gastric cancer (RGC) after distal gastrectomy occurs in 1-2% of patients, while the biological features of RGC are unknown. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 22 consecutive patients with RGC who underwent total gastrectomy were analyzed. Their disease history included either gastric cancer (n=16) or peptic ulcer (n=6). Overall, 18 underwent open total gastrectomy (OTG) and 4 underwent laparoscopic total gastrectomy (LTG). RESULTS: The mean number of lymph nodes dissected and metastatic lymph nodes was larger in the Ulcer group than in the Carcinoma group (p<0...

INTRODUCTION: Synchronous occurrence of different types of neoplasms is not very frequent, representing around 6% of all cases of cancer. Usually there is a lack of information on how to treat these patients, especially when both types of cancers are also uncommon. No cases of synchronous gallbladder adenocarcinoma and gastric gastrointestinal stromal tumor have been published before. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We present the case, management and follow-up, of a 66-year-old female with incidental diagnosis of a pT2NxMx gallbladder adenocarcinoma after elective cholecystectomy that latter, during staging, was also diagnosed with GIST...

INTRODUCTION: Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocols have been successfully integrated into peri-operative management of different cancer surgeries such as colorectal cancer. Their value for gastric cancer surgery, however, remains uncertain. METHODS: A search for randomized and observational studies comparing ERAS versus conventional care in gastric cancer surgery was performed according to PRISMA guidelines. Random-effects meta-analyses with inverse variance weighting were conducted, and quality of included studies was assessed using the Cochrane risk-of-bias tool and Newcastle-Ottawa scale (PROSPERO: CRD42017080888)...

With the development of laparoscopic skills and instruments,totally laparoscopic gastrectomy for gastric cancer has become widely used in the clinic,mainly including totally laparoscopic proximal gastric reconstruction,distal gastrectomy for gastric cancer and total gastrectomy. Digestive tract reconstruction is the key procedure of totally laparoscopic gastrectomy for gastric cancer. Totally laparoscopic surgery has less trauma and better visualization than reconstruction in a small incision. At present,feasibility and safety of totally laparoscopic gastrectomy for gastric cancer have been preliminarily confirmed...

BACKGROUND: There are several surgical options for treating early gastric cancers (EGCs), such as endoscopic resection, laparoscopic or open gastrectomy with D1 or D2 lymphadenectomy. Endoscopic resection for EGC with low risk of lymph node metastasis has been widely accepted as a therapeutic alternative. The role of endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) in treating EGC is not well established, especially when compared with resection surgery cases in a long-term follow-up scope. AIM: To compare the safety and efficacy of the short- and long-term outcomes between ESD and resection surgery...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopy-assisted gastrectomy is a feasible and safe procedure for treating advanced gastric cancer in terms of short-term outcomes. However, concern about long-term oncologic outcomes has limited the adoption of laparoscopy-assisted gastrectomy for advanced gastric cancer. METHODS: We launched a prospective randomized controlled trial comparing laparoscopic and open gastrectomy with D2 lymph node dissection for locally advanced gastric cancer to evaluate long-term oncologic feasibility...

BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive gastric cancer surgery requires an extended liver retraction in order to provide optimal operative view, working space for lymph node dissection, and esophageojejunal reconstruction. Ideally, it should avoid reposition of the retractor, additional skin incision or puncture, and liver parenchyma injury. Herein, we introduced an intracorporeal W-shaped liver retraction technique (W-LRT) for minimally invasive gastric cancer surgery without an additional incision or abodminal puncture...

A 46-year-old male patient with anorexia consulted our hospital. A scirrhous gastric cancer was found, and he was introduced to us. Laparoscopic examination was performed, and advanced peritoneal disseminated nodules were confirmed(CY1, P1). S-1 plus docetaxel therapy was introduced as first-line chemotherapy. Although the best effect judgment was PR, the primary lesion re-increased in size. We changed to the secondary weekly paclitaxel therapy. After 7 courses of the therapy, a second laparoscopic examination was performed, which confirmed the microscopic residual cancer cells(P1)in the reduced peritoneal nodules...

INTRODUCTION: Roux-an-Y gastric bypass (RYGP) is one of the most important bariatric procedures and its results are well known in terms of weight loss and comorbid improvement. The major limitation of this technique is the difficult exploration of the excluded stomach and duodenum. Some Authors are performing the gastric bypass with fundectomy and, according to Literature, it is feasible and effective, with major advantage of explorable gastric pouch. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We report the case of a 54-year-old woman affected by obesity (BMI 49 kg/m2 )...
