Totally laparoscopic total gastrectomy for stage IIIA (cT3 cN1 cM0) advanced gastric carcinoma
A 66-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with complaints of epigastric pain. His hemoglobin level was 9.3g/dL. Endoscopy of the upper gastrointestinal tract (EGD) showed an advanced gastric carcinoma that had invaded the middle and lower third of the stomach. A biopsy specimen revealed a moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma. Abdominal computed tomography (CT) showed that the tumor had invaded the stomach wall. Enlarged lymph nodes were present only around the lesser curvature (regional lymph nodes No. 3). The patient was diagnosed with stage IIIA (cT3 cN1 cM0) advanced gastric carcinoma according to the Japanese classification of gastric carcinoma1. The patient was then taken to the operating room for exploratory laparoscopy and laparoscopic total gastrectomy with D2 lymphadenectomy. The operation time was 260 minutes. No further evidence of intra-abdominal disease or liver involvement was noted. The patient did well postoperatively and was subsequently discharged home on postoperative day 9. Four metastatic lymph nodes/twenty eight regional lymph nodes were found; so the pathological findings confirmed stage IIIA. The patient is disease-free at 10 months. Japanese Classification of Gastric Carcinoma - 2nd English Edition. Gastric Cancer 1998;1:10-24.
