Risk Factors and Risk Scores for Predicting Early Recurrence After Curative Gastrectomy in Patients with Stage III Gastric Cancer

AbstractBackgroundWe revealed patients with pathological stage (pStage) III gastric cancer (GC) who had early recurrence within 12  months after curative surgery. We identified risk factors for predicting early recurrence in patients with pStage III GC who underwent curative gastrectomy.MethodsBetween January 2007 and December 2016, 758 patients underwent gastrectomy in our institution. This retrospective study included 96 patients with pStage III who were divided into two groups: early recurrence within 12  months (ERec) and non-ERec (nERec). We investigated clinicopathological differences between ERec and nERec and extracted risk factors, and constructed risk scores for ERec.ResultsOf the 96 patients, 20 (20.8%) were ERec and 76 (79.2%) were nERec. Pathological lymph node metastasis (pN) ≥ 14 (P = 0.03), preoperative carbohydrate antigen 19-9 (CA19-9) ≥ 37 IU/ml (P = 0.02), and blood loss (BL) ≥ 445 ml (P

Authors: Zhang Y, Zhang R, Ding N Abstract Clinical analgesic effect of different doses of nalbuphine combined with remifentanil on postoperative gastric cancer patients was explored. One hundred cases of gastric cancer patients treated from December 2014 to December 2016 in the Xiangyang No. 1 People's Hospital were selected and separated into group A and group B. The dose in group A was 0.2 mg/kg of nalbuphine plus 0.2 µg/kg of remifentanil, and 0.3 mg/kg of nalbuphine plus 0.1 µg/kg of remifentanil in group B. Analgesia was performed by self-controlled intravenous injection. The Visual Analogue Scale...

AbstractGastric outlet obstruction (GOO) occurs when there is mechanical obstruction impending gastric emptying. GOO has both benign and malignant aetiologies. In this paper we want to discuss, clinical presentation and management of malignant GOO. This is a retrospective observational study of 5  years in patients presenting with malignant GOO. Study was conducted in Dr. B. Borooah Cancer Institute, Guwahati, India. Patients with malignant GOO who were operated were included in this study. Chi-square test was used to evaluate association between categorical values. Independentt test and one-way ANOVA (analysis of var...

CONCLUSIONS: We believe that this laparoscopic suprapancreatic lymphadenectomy using SME takes advantage of the surgical anatomy and achieves en bloc removal of the primary tumor and gastric mesentery. This series is a proof of concept that this procedure can be performed in a timely manner and is feasible. PMID: 31407184 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
