    Background: Little is known about the vascular and lymphatic distribution of the pyloric antrum in the stomach. We focused on the infrapyloric region containing the infrapyloric artery (IPA) and lymph nodes. Methods: The anatomy of the IPA and its associated lymph nodes was clinically elucidated...

    The extent of surgery for gastric cancer has been debated since Billroth performed his first gastrectomy in 1881. This review gives an overview of the available literature on the extent of gastrectomy and lymphadenectomy for advanced resectable gastric cancer. Subtotal gastrectomy is associated...
