Treatment Modality Based Survival in Gastric Carcinoma Patients with Stand-Alone Peritoneal Metastasis: a Case-Control Study
This study investigated the survival of gastric carcinoma patients with stand-alone peritoneal metastasis according to the type of treatment modality.MATERIALS AND METHODS: We reviewed the data of 132 patients with gastric carcinoma and stand-alone peritoneal metastasis. We performed gastrectomy when the primary tumor was deemed resectable and systemic chemotherapy was administered. We analyzed patient survival according to the type of treatment, and the prognostic value of gastrectomy was evaluated in univariate and multivariate models.RESULTS: Among all patients, 70 underwent gastrectomy plus chemotherapy, 20 underwent g...

Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy using the LiVac liver retractor system: technical report
This study was conducted to evaluate the feasibility of the LiVac in LSG. We applied the LiVac in 20 patients who received LSG. The feasibility was assessed by exposure of the AOH, operation time, complications, and changes of aspartate transaminase and alanine transaminase. In all 20 patients, exposure of the AOH was successful. The mean operation time was 88 minutes. The changes in preoperative and postoperative aspartate transaminase and alanine transaminase levels were 18.6 and 9.1 U/L, respectively. There were no related morbidities. In LSG, exposure of the AOH using the LiVac was technically feasible.PMID:34235118 | ...

The Predictive Values of Pretreatment Controlling Nutritional Status (CONUT) Score in Estimating Short- and Long-term Outcomes for Patients with Gastric Cancer Treated with Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy and Curative Gastrectomy
CONCLUSIONS: The pretreatment CONUT score might be a straightforward index for immune-nutritional status assessment, while being a reliable prognostic indicator in patients with advanced GC receiving neoadjuvant chemotherapy and curative gastrectomy. Moreover, lower pretreatment CONUT scores might indicate better chemotherapy responses.PMID:34234977 | PMC:PMC8255298 | DOI:10.5230/jgc.2021.21.e14 (Source: Journal of Gastric Cancer)

Treatment Modality Based Survival in Gastric Carcinoma Patients with Stand-Alone Peritoneal Metastasis: a Case-Control Study
This study investigated the survival of gastric carcinoma patients with stand-alone peritoneal metastasis according to the type of treatment modality.MATERIALS AND METHODS: We reviewed the data of 132 patients with gastric carcinoma and stand-alone peritoneal metastasis. We performed gastrectomy when the primary tumor was deemed resectable and systemic chemotherapy was administered. We analyzed patient survival according to the type of treatment, and the prognostic value of gastrectomy was evaluated in univariate and multivariate models.RESULTS: Among all patients, 70 underwent gastrectomy plus chemotherapy, 20 underwent g...

Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy using the LiVac liver retractor system: technical report
This study was conducted to evaluate the feasibility of the LiVac in LSG. We applied the LiVac in 20 patients who received LSG. The feasibility was assessed by exposure of the AOH, operation time, complications, and changes of aspartate transaminase and alanine transaminase. In all 20 patients, exposure of the AOH was successful. The mean operation time was 88 minutes. The changes in preoperative and postoperative aspartate transaminase and alanine transaminase levels were 18.6 and 9.1 U/L, respectively. There were no related morbidities. In LSG, exposure of the AOH using the LiVac was technically feasible.PMID:34235118 | ...

Oncologic Feasibility of Proximal Gastrectomy in Upper Third Advanced Gastric and Esophagogastric Junctional Cancer
CONCLUSIONS: In the upper third AGC and Siewert type II EGJ cancer, pathological T2 and small-sized T3 stage groups are possible candidates for PG in cases without distal LN metastasis. Further validation studies are required for clinical application.PMID:34234978 | PMC:PMC8255306 | DOI:10.5230/jgc.2021.21.e15 (Source: Journal of Gastric Cancer)

The Predictive Values of Pretreatment Controlling Nutritional Status (CONUT) Score in Estimating Short- and Long-term Outcomes for Patients with Gastric Cancer Treated with Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy and Curative Gastrectomy
CONCLUSIONS: The pretreatment CONUT score might be a straightforward index for immune-nutritional status assessment, while being a reliable prognostic indicator in patients with advanced GC receiving neoadjuvant chemotherapy and curative gastrectomy. Moreover, lower pretreatment CONUT scores might indicate better chemotherapy responses.PMID:34234977 | PMC:PMC8255298 | DOI:10.5230/jgc.2021.21.e14 (Source: Journal of Gastric Cancer)
