Impact of neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio, Glasgow Prognostic Score, and postoperative decrease in psoas muscle index on recurrence after curative gastrectomy
Conclusions : The postoperative reduction in PMI at 6 months after surgery relative to presurgery could be a predictive marker of recurrence after curative gastrectomy for patients with pStage II and III GC.

J Med Invest. 2021;68(1.2):165-169. doi: 10.2152/jmi.68.165.ABSTRACTBackground : The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of obesity and the usefulness of a pre-operative weight loss program (PWLP) for obese patients undergoing laparoscopic gastrectomy (LG) for gastric cancer (GC). Materials and Methods : Study1 : 219 patients who underwent laparoscopic distal gastrectomy (LDG) for GC were divided into 2 groups : body mass index (BMI) ≧ 28 and BMI

Impact of neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio, Glasgow Prognostic Score, and postoperative decrease in psoas muscle index on recurrence after curative gastrectomy
Conclusions : The postoperative reduction in PMI at 6 months after surgery relative to presurgery could be a predictive marker of recurrence after curative gastrectomy for patients with pStage II and III GC.

Assessment of Perioperative Symptoms of Patients with Gastric Cancer Using The Edmonton Symptom Assessment System Revised Japanese version (ESAS-r-J)
J Med Invest. 2021;68(1.2):90-95. doi: 10.2152/jmi.68.90.ABSTRACTPurpose To evaluate the perioperative symptoms of gastric cancer patients undergoing gastrectomy using the Edmonton Symptom Assessment System Revised Japanese version (ESAS-r-J), which is a nine-item visual analogue scale to rate patient symptoms. Methods Between February 2015 and March 2017, 246 patients completed the ESAS-r-J before and after gastrectomy. We evaluated the changes in the prevalence and score of each ESAS-r-J item before and after gastrectomy. In addition, we compared them after gastrectomy between patients who underwent the different approac...
