PURPOSE: A surgical navigation system supports the comprehension of anatomical information during surgery. Patient-to-image registration is the alignment process between CT volume and patient coordinate systems. Achieving accurate registration in the surgical navigation of laparoscopic surgery is very challenging due to soft tissue deformation. This paper presents a new patient-to-image registration method based on internal anatomical landmarks for improving registration accuracy in the surgical navigation of laparoscopic gastrectomy for gastric cancer...

The intracorporeal anastomosis is one of the most difficult procedures in single-incision laparoscopic gastrectomy for gastric cancer. We describe a simple technique for intracorporeal triangular Billroth I anastomosis in transumbilical single-port surgery. After adequate lymphadenectomy, the stomach and duodenum were staple-transected. Small incisions were made to the remnant stomach and the duodenum. The anvil of a linear stapler and a staple compartment were inserted through the holes, and then both ends were stitched up together by stapler...

BACKGROUND: The incidence of gastric cancer has been increasing among elderly persons in Japan. This study aimed to clarify risk factors for postoperative complications in oldest old patients with gastric cancer. METHODS: One-hundred ninety patients more than 75 years old with gastric cancer underwent gastrectomy between 2000 and 2011. Patients were classified into two groups: group A included 29 patients who were 85 years or older (oldest old patients), and group B included 161 patients who were 75-84 years of age...

BACKGROUND: The extent of lymphadenectomy in the treatment of gastric cancer has been debated for more than two decades. This meta-analysis sought to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of extended lymphadenectomy in patients with gastric cancer. METHODS: A comprehensive search was performed to identify randomized clinical trials (RCTs) comparing the outcomes of D1 and D2 dissection for gastric cancer in PubMed, EMBASE, the Cochrane Library, Science Citation Index, Web of Science and the Chinese Biomedical Literature Database in any language from inception of the database to March 2012...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic distal gastrectomy has been increasingly utilized in the treatment of gastric adenocarcinoma. This study aims to compare the morbidity/mortality and postoperative outcomes of laparoscopic-assisted versus open distal gastrectomy since 2000. METHODS: A comprehensive search of MEDLINE and EMBASE was conducted including studies published between 2000 and present. RESULTS: Seventeen studies with a total of 7,109 distal gastrectomies (3,496 lap vs 3,613 open) were included...

BACKGROUND: Nasogastric or nasojejunal decompression has been used routinely to prevent anastomotic leakage, hasten the return of bowel function and shorten hospital stay after gastrectomy for gastric cancer. This meta-analysis evaluates the necessity for such routine decompression. METHODS: Medline, Embase and The Cochrane Library were searched. Only prospective randomized controlled trials (RCTs) that compared individuals with and without nasogastric or nasojejunal decompression after gastrectomy for gastric cancer were included...

BACKGROUND: Gastrectomy remains the primary therapeutic method for resectable gastric cancer. Thought of as an important measure to reduce post-operative complications and mortality, abdominal drainage was used widely after gastrectomy for gastric cancer in previous decades. The benefits of abdominal drainage have been questioned by researchers in recent years. OBJECTIVES: The objectives of this review were to access the benefits and harms of routine abdominal drainage post gastrectomy for gastric cancer...
