Total gastrectomy via thoracotomy for cancer of the cardia or fundus of the stomach (report of 90 cases)

, : Total gastrectomy via thoracotomy for cancer of the cardia or fundus of the stomach (report of 90 cases). Chinese Medical Sciences Journal 8(4): 243-245

From 1978 through 1990, 90 total gastrectomies with esophagojejunostomy via thoracotomy were performed for the treatment of cancer of the cardia or fundus of the stomach in our hospital. Eighty-five patients were in TNM-stage III and five in stage IV. The 30-day postresectional mortality was 1.1%, and the 5-year survival rate was 13.8%. 14CO2 breathing test and clinical evaluation of 34 postoperative patients (not included in the 90 patients) showed that total gastrectomy may decrease the incidence of positive residual cancer along the incision lines, and may help to avoid small stomach syndrome. There was no statistical difference in postoperative fat absorption between patients treated by ordinary proximal subtotal gastrectomy and those receiving total gastrectomy via thoracotomy.

Several recent reports implicate an important role played by c-Jun N-terminal kinases (JNKs) in long-term potentiation (LTP). However, little is known about how the isoforms of JNKs participate in synaptic plasticity. Here we showed that short-te...
