    Purpose: Various reconstruction methods with or without reservoir formation after total gastrectomy have been established. Transverse intestinoplasty has benefits as a functional peristalsis modification in rectal resections. In this study, we evaluate a distal pouch combined with a transverse...

    Approximately 7.8 per cent of all gastric ulcers are malignant. It has also been demonstrated that 4 per cent of gastric cancers will perforate. It is not unlikely, therefore, that the average surgeon will encounter a patient with perforated carcinoma of the stomach. Immediate gastric resection,...

    In an experience consisting of over 1,000 subtotal gastrectomies for the complication of peptic ulcer disease in a ten-year period, six patients had a chronic afferent loop syndrome characterized by episodes of this bilious vomiting. These six patients all required surgical correction of this...

This study reviews the prognoses of patients aged 85 years and older who were diagnosed with gastric carcinoma. Methods: One hundred seventeen patients aged 85 years and older were diagnosed as...

  • Surgical Outcomes for Gastric Cancer in the Upper Third of the Stomach. Jong Han Kim; Sung Soo Park; Jin Kim; Yoon Jung Boo; Seung Joo Kim; Young Jae Mok; Chong Suk Kim // World Journal of Surgery;Oct2006, Vol. 30 Issue 10, p1870 

    Introduction: The proportion of gastric cancers affecting the upper third of the stomach has been increasing. At our surgical service we perform total and proximal gastrectomy for this condition. The purpose of this study was to investigate the surgical outcome of the two operative procedures...

  • Modified hemi-double-stapling technique combined with the temporal abdominal wall-lift method for performing Billroth I anastomosis after laparoscopically assisted distal gastrectomy. Fujii, Hidenori; Aotake, Toshiharu; Kawakami, Yoshiyuki; Okuda, Yukihiro; Doi, Koji; Hirose, Yuki; Matsushita, Toshio // Surgical Endoscopy;Dec2008, Vol. 22 Issue 12, p2748 

    The authors have used a modified hemi-double-stapling (HDS) technique for reconstruction after laparoscopically assisted distal gastrectomy. The stomach is resected from the greater curvature side using a linear stapler inserted into the stomach from that side at a position vertical to the line...

    The authors have operated a number of 416 patients with gastric cancer, between 1988 and 2001. Among them, 305 patients were resectable. The resection rate was of 73,3%. Total Gastrectomy (TG) was performed in 161 patients (52,8% of resections). TG with omectectomy was performed in 44 patients....

    AIM: To evaluate the effectiveness of endoscopic submucosal dissection using an insulation-tipped diathermic knife (IT-ESD) for the treatment of patients with gastric remnant cancer. METHODS: Thirty-two patients with early gastric cancer in the remnant stomach, who underwent distal gastrectomy...
