Clinical outcomes of non-exposed endoscopic wall-inversion surgery for gastric submucosal tumors: long-term follow-up and functional results

ConclusionsOn the basis of slight body weight loss and the absence of food residue observed in the postoperative endoscopy, NEWS appeared to be safe and feasible for gastric SMTs and to preserve function of the remnant stomach.

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...

AbstractBackgroundElderly patients with gastric cancer are frequently treated surgically in current clinical practice. Although several studies have investigated short-term outcomes after gastrectomy in elderly patients, most did not evaluate long-term outcomes.MethodsWe analyzed 1154 consecutive patients who underwent curative gastrectomy for gastric cancer between 2001 and 2013. We classified them into two groups: the elderly group (n = 241), consisting of patients aged ≥75 years, and the non-elderly group (n = 913), consisting of patients aged

ConclusionSurgical improvement programs should focus on preventing or managing anastomotic leakage and pulmonary complications, since these complications have the greatest overall impact on clinical outcomes after gastrectomy.
