Kavita Agrawal, Flores Alfonso
An 80-year-old male presented with dyspnea on exertion for at least two months. He also complained of progressive dysphagia and weight loss of 35 pounds over the last eight months. Initial blood tests showed hemoglobin of 6.1 g/dl, reticulocytes count of 19.7%, total bilirubin of 3.2 mg/dl, lactate dehydrogenase of 600 U/L, and haptoglobin of less than 8 mg/dl, and direct Coombs test was positive for warm immunoglobulin G. The impression was autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA). The evaluation of dysphagia with esophagogastroduodenoscopy revealed a single irregular 4 cm malignant appearing ulcerated mass at the incisura angularis of the stomach...

Background: Few studies have been designed to evaluate the short- and long-term outcomes of laparoscopy-assisted total gastrectomy (LATG), and a retrospective study of a large patient cohort is valuable before conducting randomized controlled clinical trials. Results: Among all patients, age, tumor location, histologic type, pT stage, pN stage and pTNM stage significantly differed between the LATG group and OTG group. After the propensity score matching, the clinicopathological characteristics did not significantly differ between groups...

A 55-year-woman presented with abdominal fullness. An abdominal MRI disclosed ovarian and uterine tumors. Under the pathological diagnosis of Kruckenberg tumor, total hysterectomy and bilateral adenexectomy were performed. Gastrointestinal endoscopy disclosed type 3 on the greater curvature and anterior wall of the middle gastric body. The gastric cancer had a similar histology, which suggested the tumor origin and led to the diagnosis of c-stage IV. She received 6 courses of SOX chemotherapy. Staging laparoscopy revealed no peritoneal metastasis and negative cytodiagnosis of ascites...

INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopy-assisted gastrectomy (LAG) is a minimally invasive procedure for the treatment of gastric cancer. It is generally thought that a minimally invasive technique results in less visible blood loss during the surgery. Nevertheless, a meaningful perioperative hidden blood loss (HBL) is often ignored. In this study, we investigated the amount of HBL and the influential factors after LAG for gastric cancer. METHODS: A retrospectively analyzed clinical data of 62 consecutive patients who underwent laparoscopy-assisted total or distal gastrectomy at our center from May 2016 to May 2017...

BACKGROUND: The prognosis of stage IV gastric cancer (GC) still remains unfavorable. Multidisciplinary approaches should therefore be considered to improve the survival of patients with stage IV GC. We report here a case of primary GC with potentially unresectable metastasis, successfully treated by a multidisciplinary approach including chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and surgery. CASE PRESENTATION: A 74-year-old man presented with multiple left neck masses. Abdominal computed tomography showed a thickened gastric wall and multiple lymphadenopathies including left supraclavicular lymph node...

REVIEW
Souya Nunobe, Naoki Hiki
The number of early gastric cancer (EGC) cases has been increasing because of improved diagnostic procedures including endoscopy and screening systems. Therefore, function-preserving gastrectomy (FPG) for EGC with the expectation of better quality of life (QOL) after surgery may be increasingly utilized, due to its association with low rate of lymph node metastasis and excellent survival and the possibility of employing less invasive procedures such as laparoscopic gastrectomy in combination. Pylorus-preserving gastrectomy (PPG) with curative intent lymph node dissection is a representative FPG that has been used in EGC, and its superiorities, indications, limitations, and survival benefits have already been reported in several retrospective studies...

In the last 25 years, the number of patients aged ≥75 years undergoing non-cardiac surgery has greatly increased. In elderly patients, frailty is significantly associated with an increased risk of adverse events, functional decline, procedural complications, prolonged hospitalization, and mortality. The relationship between frailty and increased mortality and morbidity requires an appropriate tool of assessment to accurately quantify the patient's clinical and perioperative conditions. The preoperative evaluation of elderly patients candidate for non-cardiac surgery should include assessment of frailty, sarcopenia and malnutrition, as these are related to high surgical risk...

OBJECTIVES: The safety and surgical oncology of laparoscopy-assisted total gastrectomy (LATG) remain inconclusive and challenging. This study aimed to compare the short-term and long-term outcomes between LATG and open total gastrectomy (OTG) procedures. RESULTS: In the all-included analyses, there were 69 patients in the LATG group and 268 in the OTG group. LATG was as safe as OTG without increasing postoperative morbidity and mortality. Stage imbalance might introduce differences in the numbers of harvested lymph nodes in LATG (34...

BACKGROUND: Gastric adenocarcinoma is a heterogenous disease with often a late presentation. Staging laparoscopy (SL) improves the detection of metastases not visible on standard cross-sectional imaging. Routine SL may avoid unnecessary surgical exploration in a significant proportion of patients. METHOD: A retrospective review of a prospectively maintained database was performed identifying the use of routine SL in patients presenting with potentially resectable gastric (GCA) and oesophagogastric junction (OGJ) adenocarcinoma; with patients presenting between April 2013 and April 2017 to a single surgical unit reviewed...
