An Optimal Surgical Approach for Suprapancreatic Area Dissection in Laparoscopic D2 Gastrectomy with Complete Mesogastric Excision
ConclusionA laparoscopic subtotal gastrectomy with D2+CME procedure provides for a complete and standardized en bloc excision of the suprapancreatic area dissection.
CONCLUSIONS: Our robotic approach using an oval-shaped port device for gastric cancer patients is feasible in terms of patient safety and curability. PMID: 32077483 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionsCLEAN-NET with SNNS preserved a better QOL and nutrition status than LADG in patients with early gastric cancer.
In Reply We appreciate the thoughtful responses from Rosa and Alfieri to our article on the safety of laparoscopic gastrectomy after neoadjuvant chemotherapy in a pilot randomized clinical trial (RCT). Preoperative chemotherapy and laparoscopic surgery for advanced gastric cancer have been a research hotspot for nearly 20 years. However, high-quality evidence on efficacy and safety of laparoscopic gastrectomy in patients with neoadjuvant chemotherapy is absent, which drove us to conduct this single-center pilot RCT. We estimated the sample size based on primary outcome (3-year recurrence free survival) and recruited the re...
To the Editor We read with great interest the article by Li et al who compared, in a phase 2, open-label, noninferiority randomized clinical trial, laparoscopic distal gastrectomy and open distal gastrectomy in patients with clinical T2-T4N+M0 gastric cancer (GC) who were receiving neoadjuvant chemotherapy.
AbstractBackgroundLaparoscopic proximal gastrectomy (LPG) is regarded as a less invasive surgery than laparoscopic total gastrectomy (LTG) for early gastric cancer located on the proximal side of the stomach. However, whether LPG is more effective than LTG remains unclear.MethodsA systematic literature search of studies assessing short-term surgical and nutritional outcomes after LPG and LTG was conducted. A meta-analysis of surgical outcomes (operative time, intraoperative estimated blood loss, postoperative complications, and length of hospital stay) and nutritional outcomes (decrease in body weight, albumin, hemoglobin,...
ConclusionsFunctional outcomes of the standardized DA were satisfactory and feasible. Our intracorporeal Billroth-I reconstruction, by resecting two-thirds of the stomach, can be one of the standard reconstruction methods after a laparoscopic distal gastrectomy.
Background: Totally laparoscopic total gastrectomy (TLTG) and laparoscopic-assisted total gastrectomy (LATG) are two common surgical approaches for upper and middle gastric cancer. Which surgical approach offers more advantages is still controversial due to a lack of evidence from randomized controlled trials (RCTs). This meta-analysis was conducted to compare the short-term outcomes between the two surgical approaches. Methods: A systematic literature search was performed to evaluate short-term outcomes between TLTG and LATG, including overall postoperative complications, anastomosis-related complications, time for a...
