The debate is still open about laparoscopic treatment of gastric cancer. The aim of this retrospective study is to analyze our short-, medium-, and long-term surgical and oncological results in laparoscopic treatment of gastric cancer with D2 lymphadenectomy and omentum preservation. From January 2010 to June 2018, after >150 surgical procedures for gastric cancer performed by minimally invasive approach, we performed 100 laparoscopic subtotal gastrectomies and 38 total gastrectomies, both for early gastric cancer (EGC) and advanced gastric cancer (AGC). We always made a D2 lymphadenectomy or higher. As often as possible, we performed omentum-preserving technique. Primary outcomes analyzed included incidence of medical and surgical complications. Secondary outcomes analyzed were survival probability and incidence of relapse. Every patient read and signed informed consent before surgery. Mean operative time: 2.4 ± 0.7 hours (range 1.2-4.7 hours). Rate of conversions: 14.5% (20/138); intraoperative complications: 1.4% (2/138) and positive resection margins: 6.5% (9/138). Overall incidence of duodenal fistula: 3.6% (5/138). Rate of reoperation was 7.3% (10/138). Postoperative complications according to Clavien-Dindo classification: I 3.6% (5/138); II 13.0% (18/138); III 5.8% (8/138); III B 0.7% (1/138); V 1.4% (2/138). Overall survival with 60 months follow-up was 58%. Overall 60 months incidence of relapse was 44%. Patients with omentum preservation had a lower incidence of relapse than patients with omentectomy (40% versus 57% = .002). Laparoscopic treatment of gastric cancer with D2 lymphadenectomy and omentum preservation is safe and feasible, both for EGC and for AGC. Although this study has limitations, omentum-preserving technique was associated with a statistically lower recurrence rate.

That portion of the stomach remaining after gastric surgery, usually gastrectomy or gastroenterostomy for cancer of the stomach or peptic ulcer. It is a common site of cancer referred to as stump cancer or carcinoma of the gastric stump.
Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.
Procedures that avoid use of open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device. With the reduced trauma associated with minimally invasive surgery, long hospital stays may be reduced with increased rates of short stay or day surgery.
