Abstract

Background: Laproscopic surgery is widely used in treating gastrointestinal disease. This study investigated the clinical result, short-term outcomes, and cost analysis of the newly developed gasless laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy (GLADG) and compared it with conventional open distal gastrectomy (ODG). Methods: Seventy-five patients underwent distal gastrectomy with radical lymph node dissection for early gastric cancer from December 2005 to January 2008. Thirty-one patients underwent GLADG and 44 underwent ODG. Postoperative pain, morphine use, disease-free and overall survival, and surgical and hospital costs were measured postoperatively and compared between the two groups. Results: Patients in the two groups were comparable by age, sex, body mass index, tumor size, tumor location, cancer staging, and operative time. The GLADG group had early start of oral intake and shorter postoperative hospital stay (P
