Surgery of gastric cancer in a medium volume center

, : Surgery of gastric cancer in a medium volume center. Der Chirurg; Zeitschrift für Alle Gebiete der Operativen Medizen 83(9): 823-829

The aim of the study was to evaluate prognostic factors for the surgical treatment of gastric cancer in a medium volume center. The investigation focused in particular on morbidity and mortality. From January 2005 to August 2011 a total of 74 patients with gastric cancer were surgically treated in our medium volume center. The study of these patients included morbidity, mortality, UICC (International Union Against Cancer) stage, Laurén classification, surgical therapy procedure, American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) classification and duration of surgery. After surgery 11 patients suffered from complications with a morbidity of 14.9% and a mortality of 1.4% (n=1). No significant differences could be detected during the study period. In comparison to other studies the morbidity and mortality rates signify similar to better data than complications of high volume centers which might be due to the small group of surgeons who are specialized in gastric surgery.
