Laparoscopic versus open gastrectomy for advanced gastric cancer : Operative and postoperative results.

[Laparoscopic versus open gastrectomy for advanced gastric cancer : Operative and postoperative results]. Chirurg. 2019 Oct 25;: Authors: Raakow J, Denecke C, Chopra S, Fritz J, Hofmann T, Andreou A, Thuss-Patience P, Pratschke J, Biebl M Abstract BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive gastrectomy is increasingly becoming established worldwide as an alternative to open gastrectomy (OG); however, the majority of available articles in the literature refer to Asian populations and early stages of gastric cancer. This makes an international comparison difficult due to a discrepancy in patient populations and tumor biology as well as Asian and western treatment approaches. Little is known, therefore, whether laparoscopic gastrectomy (LG) can be performed in advanced cancer, in particular with respect to laparoscopic D2 lymphadenectomy, with sufficient radicality and safety in this country. MATERIAL AND METHODS: All gastrectomies performed for the treatment of advanced gastric cancer with clinical UICC stages 2 and 3 between 2005 and 2017 were analyzed. A case match by age, gender and UICC stage was performed to compare the operative and early postoperative results of LG and OG. RESULTS: A total of 243 patients with advanced gastric cancer were analyzed. Of these 81 patients (33.3%) underwent LG. The operative time for LG was around 74 min longer (279.2 min vs. 353.4 min, OG vs. LG; p

ConclusionCareful evaluation of the clinical findings and close observation with EGD can help detect mucosal demarcation lines and ascertain the perfect timing for intervention in cases with suspected ischemia. Although gastric remnant ischemia requires emergency treatment, laparoscopic management is a feasible option when performed by an expert surgeon.

Conclusions: The selections and short-term surgical outcomes of LG for GC were widely different between East and West. To obtain more objective and accurate results, these differences should be considered in future international prospective studies.

ConclusionsLaparoscopic gastrectomy leads to postoperative TPA loss, especially in patients who underwent LTG and had postoperative respiratory complications. Postoperative complications after LDG were also a risk factor for TPA loss.

ConclusionsDuring our 15  years of experience, we have successfully performed 1483 cases of AGC with laparoscopy. Our results showed short-term and long-term oncologic outcomes that were comparable with other studies. LG is safe and feasible in general practice for advanced gastric cancer when performed by experienced surg eons.

Background: Laparoscopy-assisted gastrectomy (LAG) has been proven to be feasible and oncologically safe for early gastric cancer. Despite the rapid increase in the number of LAG cases, there are few reports on the long-term outcomes of T4a (serosalinvasion) gastric cancer after LAG. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the long-term clinical outcomes in patients with stage T4a gastric cancer after laparoscopic gastrectomy. Materials and Methods: A total of 578 patients with gastric cancer were treated with LAG between February 2004 and December 2014. Among these patients, 224 patients were pathologically conf...
