Feasibility of No Prophylactic Antibiotics Use in Patients Undergoing Total Laparoscopic Distal Gastrectomy for Gastric Carcinoma: a Propensity Score-Matched Case-Control Study.

Conclusions: Postoperative morbidity, including SSI rates, did not significantly increase in patients undergoing TLDG without prophylactic antibiotic use. A large prospective randomized trial is warranted to reappraise the efficacy of prophylactic antibiotic use in patients undergoing TLDG. PMID: 31897347 [PubMed]

CONCLUSIONS: Total or subtotal gastrectomy with D2 lymphadenectomy and adjuvant therapy for the treatment of locally advanced gastric cancer proved a valuable strategy. Staging laparoscopy is recommended. KEY WORDS: Gastric cancer, Laparoscopy, Lymphadenectomy, Prognosis, Surgery. PMID: 32719184 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionsSurvival rates for patients with gastric adenocarcinoma and peritoneal disease treated with cytoreduction, gastrectomy, and HIPEC are encouraging; our early results are similar to those of recent prospective registry studies. Multi-institutional and cooperative group trials should be supported to confirm survival and safety outcomes.

Anastomotic recurrence after laparoscopic distal gastrectomy with delta-shaped anastomosis : report of a case. J Med Invest. 2020;67(1.2):211-213 Authors: Ishikawa D, Yoshikawa K, Higashijima J, Nishi M, Kashihara H, Takasu C, Shimada M Abstract Delta-shaped anastomosis is nowadays an increasingly performed reconstruction method in laparoscopic distal gastrectomy for early gastric cancer. To date, anastomotic recurrence at the delta-shaped anastomotic site has not been reported. Surgery for this disease is more complicated than anastomotic recurrence at the site of conventional Billroth-I anastomos...

ConclusionsIntracorporeal anastomosis using linear staplers reduced anastomotic bleeding and stenosis compared to extracorporeal anastomosis after LTG. Future research will be required to determine the ideal method for intracorporeal anastomosis in LTG.

Conclusion: Tumour size, depth of invasion, morphological classification and blood vessel invasion were predictive risk factors for LNM in EGC. We propose that EGC patients with those risk factors should be accepted gastrectomy with LN dissection.

ConclusionsThis study showed that double-flap valvuloplastic esophagogastrostomy is safe and feasible for reconstruction after LEPG for Siewert type II esophagogastric junction carcinoma. Moreover, the TDF method is a simple and useful technique that offers a shorter operative time and lower morbidity compared to the CDF technique.

ConclusionRisk-reducing total gastrectomy remains the best clinical management for patients with hereditary diffuse gastric cancer harboring a  germline, pathogenicCDH1 variant. In our series, intramucosal carcinoma foci were found in the great majority (89.5%) ofCDH1 carriers.

Conclusions: TLDG with B-I or B-II anastomosis is safe and feasible for gastric cancer. B-II anastomosis may require less time than B-I anastomosis.
