BACKGROUND: Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocols or fast-track (FT) programs enable a shorter hospital stay and lower complication rate. Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is associated with a lesser trauma and a quicker recovery in many elective abdominal surgeries. However, little is known of the safety and effectiveness made by ERAS protocols combined with MIS for gastric cancer. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the safety and effectiveness made by FT programs and MIS in combination or alone...

Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) for upper gastrointestinal (GI) cancer, characterized by minimal access, has been increasingly performed worldwide. It not only results in better cosmetic outcomes, but also reduces intraoperative blood loss and postoperative pain, leading to faster recovery; however, endoscopically enhanced anatomy and improved hemostasis via positive intracorporeal pressure generated by CO2 insufflation have not contributed to reduction in early postoperative complications or improvement in long-term outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) has emerged as a treatment of choice for early-stage gastric cancer. However, applying MIS to gastric patients with high body mass index (BMI) is technically challenging, especially when performing D2 lymphadenectomy. Recently, robotic systems have been adopted to overcome the technical limitations of conventional laparoscopic surgery. Nevertheless, studies on the impact of the use of robotic systems to perform D2 lymphadenectomy in high BMI patients are lacking...

BACKGROUND: As life expectancy is increasing, the use of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) in the elderly is gaining interest. The aim of this study was to identify the impact of minimally invasive gastrectomy by comparing the procedure to open surgery in octogenarians. In addition, we also evaluated the role of gastrectomy in elderly gastric cancer patients by assessing long-term outcomes. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed data from 99 gastric cancer patients aged 80 years or older, who underwent gastrectomy by either MIS or open surgery from 2005 to 2010...

Minimally invasive operative procedures are increasingly being used for treating tumors of the upper gastrointestinal tract. While minimally invasive surgery (MIS) has become established as a standard procedure for benign tumors and gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) based on current studies, the significance of MIS in the field of gastric cancer is the topic of heated debate. Until now the majority of studies and meta-analyses on gastric cancer have come from Asia and these indicate the advantages of MIS in terms of intraoperative blood loss, minor surgical complications and swifter convalescence although without any benefits in terms of long-term oncological results and quality of life...

AIM: To evaluate the risk associated with variants of the UNC5C gene recently suspected to predispose to familial colorectal cancer (CRC). METHODS: We screened patients with familial CRC forms as well as patients with sporadic CRCs. In a first time, we analyzed exon 11 of the UNC5C gene in 120 unrelated patients with suspected hereditary CRC, 58 patients with suspected Lynch-associated cancer or polyposis, and 132 index cases of Lynch syndrome families with a characterized mutation in a DNA mismatch repair (MMR)...

MicroRNA-107 (miR-107) has been demonstrated to regulate proliferation and apoptosis in many types of cancers. Nevertheless, its biological function in gastric cancer remains largely unexplored. Here, we found that the expression level of miR-107 was increased in gastric cancer in comparison with the adjacent normal tissues. The enforced expression of miR-107 was able to promote cell proliferation in NCI-N87 and AGS cells, while miR-107 antisense oligonucleotides (antisense miR-107) blocked cell proliferation...

BACKGROUND: Although surgeons normally use minimally invasive surgery (MIS) for patients with early gastric cancer, in Korea and Japan the procedure is also indicated for serosa-negative tumors. Serosal invasion is regarded to be a potential risk factor for peritoneal dissemination as a result of the effect of pneumoperitoneum and tumor manipulation during the operation. We compared operative outcomes between MIS and conventional open surgery for serosa-involved advanced gastric cancer patients who had a preoperative diagnosis of cancer without serosal invasion...

OBJECTIVE: microRNAs (miRNAs) are a new class of non-coding RNAs involved in regulating various biological processes including proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis, among others. Alterations in miRNA expression are reported in several human cancers, which suggests their potential roles in tumor initiation and progression. Members of the miR-302 cluster are highly expressed in embryonic stem cells (ESC), where they regulate cell self-renewal and pluripotency. Based on the cancer stem cell (CSC) hypothesis, mis-expression of such genes might contribute to tumorigenicity...

The interest in minimally invasive surgery (MIS) for the treatment of gastric carcinoma has increased in recent years worldwide. In particular, for early gastric carcinoma (EGC) many retrospective comparative trials and some prospective randomized trials have confirmed that laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy shows a better short-term outcome in terms of lower morbidity, less pain, faster recovery and shorter hospital stay in contrast to open surgery. In this group of selected patients MIS is safe and feasible but at present not widely accepted because of a limited evaluation in oncologic long-term follow-up...

Gastric cancer is most common cancer in Korea. Surgery is still the main axis of treatment. Due to early detection of gastric cancer, the innovation of surgical instruments and technological advances, gastric cancer treatment is now shifting to a new era. One of the most astonishing changes is that minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is becoming more dominant treatment for early gastric cancer. These MIS are represented by endoscopic resection, laparoscopic surgery, robotic surgery, single-port surgery and natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery...

Laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy for gastric cancer was first reported by Kitano et al. in 1991. Laparoscopic wedge resection (LWR) and intragastric mucosal resection (IGMR) were quickly adapted for gastric cancer limited to the mucosal layer and having no risk of lymph node metastasis. Following improvements in endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) and endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD), the use of LWR and IGMR for these indications decreased, and patients with gastric cancer, including those with a risk of lymph node metastases, were more likely to be managed with laparoscopic gastrectomy (LG) with lymph node dissection...
