Feasibility Study of Laparoscopy-assisted D2 Distal Gastrectomy to Treat Advanced Gastric Cancer

2014-07-23 21:09:48 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to evaluate the oncological feasibility of laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy with D2 lymph node dissection for advanced gastric cancer.


To test oncological feasibility, compliance of nodal dissection was selected as a primary end point. When there are more than two missing nodal station(no lymph nodes in dissected area), it is defined as a non-compliant nodal dissection. Other secondary outcomes will be supplementary to evaluate feasibility of D2 dissection.

Clinical Study on Laparoscopic Gastrectomy for Early Gastric Cancer

Rationale: For the treatment of early gastric cancer (EGC) in the distal portion of the stomach, subtotal gastrectomy and lymph node dissection has been a standard operation. With the incr...

A propensity score-matched comparison of laparoscopic distal versus total gastrectomy for middle-third advanced gastric cancer.

The optimal resection extent for middle-third advanced gastric cancer (AGC) still remains controversial. This study aimed to assess the long-term oncologic outcomes of laparoscopy-assisted distal gast...

Equivalent feasibility and safety of perioperative care by ERAS in open and laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy for gastric cancer: a single-institution ancillary study using the patient cohort enrolled in the JCOG0912 phase III trial.

Laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy (LADG) has an advantage of earlier recovery after surgery due to having lower invasiveness and wound pain than open distal gastrectomy (ODG). However, whether t...

Long-term outcomes of laparoscopic versus open gastrectomy for advanced gastric cancer: A large cohort study.

The adequacy of laparoscopy-assisted gastrectomy (LAG) for advanced gastric cancer (AGC) treatment remains uncertain. There are few reports on the long-term outcomes of laparoscopic versus open gastre...

Reduced-port totally robotic distal subtotal gastrectomy with lymph node dissection for gastric cancer: a modified technique using Single-Site and two additional ports.

Reduced-port laparoscopic gastrectomy further minimizes the invasiveness of laparoscopic gastrectomy, thereby improving patient quality of life. However, suboptimal ergonomics and visualization are ch...

Intracorporeal Isosceles Right Triangle-shaped Anastomosis in Totally Laparoscopic Distal Gastrectomy.

This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility and safety of intracorporeal anastomosis with Billroth I, Billroth II, or Roux-en-Y reconstructions in totally laparoscopic distal gastrectomy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Excision of the whole (total gastrectomy) or part (subtotal gastrectomy, partial gastrectomy, gastric resection) of the stomach. (Dorland, 28th ed)

A serotonin antagonist and a histamine H1 blocker used as antipruritic, appetite stimulant, antiallergic, and for the post-gastrectomy dumping syndrome, etc.

The portion of renal tubule that begins from the enlarged segment of the ascending limb of the LOOP OF HENLE. It reenters the KIDNEY CORTEX and forms the convoluted segments of the distal tubule.

A condition characterized by calcification of the renal tissue itself. It is usually seen in distal RENAL TUBULAR ACIDOSIS with calcium deposition in the DISTAL KIDNEY TUBULES and the surrounding interstitium. Nephrocalcinosis causes RENAL INSUFFICIENCY.

The joint that is formed by the distal end of the RADIUS, the articular disc of the distal radioulnar joint, and the proximal row of CARPAL BONES; (SCAPHOID BONE; LUNATE BONE; triquetral bone).
