UNLABELLED: Presence of free gastric cancer cells in the peritoneal cavity of patients who underwent surgical treatment for gastric cancer is a negative prognostic factor and caused rapid disease recurrence, manifested as peritoneal metastases. Positive peritoneal cytology despite lack of visible peritoneal metastases was regarded as M1 class in the TNM classification (7th edition) in 2010. The aim of the study was to analyze factors associated with positive peritoneal cytology and identify groups of patients in whom diagnostic laparoscopy plus peritoneal lavage in the diagnostic process could affect therapeutic decisions...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Maximal cytoreductive surgery (CS) with heated intraperitoneal chemotherapy perfusion (HIPEC) for peritoneal carcinomatosis can improve oncologic outcomes, but is associated with significant morbidity. Whether low-volume experience with CS/HIPEC results in acceptable outcomes is unknown. METHODS: A retrospective review of all patients undergoing CS/HIPEC by a single surgeon. Experience was divided into first versus second 50 cases, and patient characteristics, operative details, and outcomes were compared...

Gastric cancer patients with positive peritoneal cytology as the only marker of metastatic disease have poor prognoses. There is no universal consensus on the most appropriate treatment regimen for this particular patient group. We reviewed and analyzed published data to determine the optimal treatment regimen for patients with peritoneal cytology-positive gastric adenocarcinomas. Six electronic databases were explored [PubMed, Cochrane (Systematic Reviews and Controlled Trials), PROSPERO, DARE, and EMBASE]...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the significance of the conversion of the peritoneal cytology from positive to negative following induction chemotherapy in relation to the prognosis after subsequent resection for gastric cancer. METHODS: This retrospective study was conducted using a prospectively maintained database. A total of 47 patients with free cancer cells in the peritoneal cavity, as evaluated by staging laparoscopy, but no other evidence of distant metastasis, who underwent induction chemotherapy followed by surgery were enrolled in the study...

BACKGROUND: Some patients who undergo curative gastrectomy with lymph node dissection (LND) for gastric cancer (GC) show subsequent peritoneal metastasis. The source of these metastatic cells remains unclear. METHODS: Curative gastrectomy with LND was performed in 102 patients with GC. Peritoneal washing was collected before and after gastrectomy. Cytology, reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction, and cell culture were used to determine the presence of cancer cells...
