The Type of Complications Following Gastric Cancer Surgery

Dr. Dritan Reovica | Krenar Lilaj [3]


Abstract: The incidence of postoperative complications after radical gastrectomy remains high, and the estimated incidence is 12.8 to 14%. Given the prevalence of postoperative complications after radical gastrectomy, it is important to determine whether a correlation exists between postoperative complications and poor prognosis. The existence of that correlation may not only lead to a consideration of shortening follow-up interval and enforcing adjuvant chemotherapy in patient who have developed postoperative complications, but may also underline the necessity of neoadjuvant chemotherapy and stress control management in patients with high risk of developing postoperative complications to reduce the hazard for long term prognosis. [4] In the meta-analysis, the correlations between postoperative complications and prognosis after radical gastrectomy were assessed. Although etiologic and pathologic differences exist in the presentation of gastric cancer treated in the West versus the East, surgical techniques developed in countries of high-incidence have become more universal. It is widely accepted that gastrectomy with a modified D2 lymphadenectomy (sparing the distal pancreas and spleen) confers adequate staging information, with the goal of obtaining a minimum of 15 lymph nodes.
