    Introduction: The depth of the tumor invasion and nodal involvement are the two main prognostic factors in gastric cancer. Staging systems differ among countries and new tools are needed to interpret and compare results and to reduce stage migration. The node ratio (NR) has been...

    Background: Laparoscopically assisted pylorus-preserving gastrectomy (LAPPG) is introduced as a function-preserving operation with minimal invasion for early gastric cancer (EGC). This study aimed to investigate the long-term outcome and survival with LAPPG. Methods: From January 2005 to July...

    Proximal gastrectomy with jejunal pouch interposition (PGJP) has been advocated as an alternative operation for upper third gastric cancer. However, there has been no prospective randomized trial comparing PGJP with total gastrectomy with Roux-en- Y esophagojejunostomy (TGRY). The aim of this...

    Robotic surgery was invented to overcome the demerits of laparoscopic surgery. However, the role of robotic surgery in gastrectomy has rarely been reported. This study aimed to evaluate the use of robot-assisted distal subtotal gastrectomy to facilitate surgical training for gastric cancer....

    It has been suggested that gastric cancer has a worse prognosis in young patients, but the data are controversial. The aim of this study was to compare the 5-year survivals after gastrectomy for gastric cancer in two groups of patients (those ≤45 years of age and those (>45 years) and to...

    Surgical treatment for locally advanced gastric cancer remains controversial, and many still question the benefits of extended resection. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of combined resection of the involved organs with regard to survival in patients with gastric cancer....

    Signet-ring cell type of gastric carcinoma can easily escape detection by the pathologist, and this confusion is compounded by the presence of morphologic patterns other than the conventional appearance. One such morphologic variant is composed of deeply eosinophilic cells containing minute...
