ConclusionsEarly feeding and discharge for total or proximal gastrectomy is feasible and safe as long as it is carefully applied to high-risk patients, but we must be aware of the relatively higher readmission rate of this patient group.

AbstractObjective.The aim of this study was to investigate the prognostic value of preoperative sarcopenia and systemic inflammation for patients with resectable gastric cancer (GC) and develop a novel and powerful prognostic score based on these factors.Materials and Methods.Patients with GC who underwent radical gastrectomy between December 2009 and December 2013 were included. A multivariate Cox regression analysis was performed to identify the prognostic factors. A novel prognostic score (SLMR) was developed based on preoperative sarcopenia and the lymphocyte‐monocyte ratio (LMR), and its prognostic value was evaluat...

Conclusions: In the CRITICS trial, hospitals with a high annual volume of gastric cancer surgery were associated with higher overall and DFS. These findings emphasize the value of centralizing gastric cancer surgeries in the Western world.

Conclusions: Laparoscopic distal gastrectomy with D2 lymphadenectomy for locally advanced gastric cancer shows benefits in terms of lower complication rate, faster recovery, and less pain compared with open surgery.

This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility and safety of early oral feeding (EOF) for patients with gastric cancer after radical gastrectomy. The EOF protocol was implemented in 397 patients who underwent radical gastrectomy between 2005 and 2014 at our hospital. The protocol was common in 277 patients after distal gastrectomy (DG) and 120 patients after total gastrectomy (TG). The patients were scheduled to start drinking water in the morning of the first postoperative day and to start thin rice gruel with a liquid nutrition supplement on the second postoperative day. We analyzed the incidence of postoperative complicat...

Conclusion: Considering the survival benefits and preserved function, proximal gastrectomy can be performed safely in stage Ia and Ib gastric cancer (T1N0, T1N1, and T2N0) with an excellent remission rate. Proximal gastrectomy is not recommended for advanced gastric cancer. PMID: 31687853 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
