1. Laparoscopic-assisted distal gastrectomy is non-inferior to open distal gastrectomy for clinical stage IA and IB gastric cancer in terms of relapse-free survival at 5 year follow-up. Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent) Laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy (LADG) is now increasingly used for early stage gastric cancer, with evidence showing reduced intraoperative blood...

1. Patients undergoing laparoscopic distal gastrectomy for locally advanced gastric cancer have better postoperative outcomes when compared to those undergoing traditional open distal gastrectomy. Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent) The use of multiple treatment modalities, including surgery, forms the current standard of care in the management of locally advanced gastric cancer....
Identification of patients and plaques vulnerable to future coronary events with near-infrared spectroscopy intravascular ultrasound imaging: a prospective, cohort study 1. NIRS imaging in patients undergoing cardiac catheterization for suspected coronary artery disease can be used in identifying high-risk non-culprit lesions contributing to future major adverse coronary events.  Evidence Rating Level:...
1. In this randomized clinical trial, three-year disease-free survival rates were similar for patients with locally advanced gastric cancer treated with laparoscopic vs. open distal gastrectomy. 2. Overall survival and cumulative incidence of recurrence rates over the 3-year period did not differ between the two groups. Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent) Study...

Gastric cancer is typically treated with surgical resection followed by chemotherapy. Peritoneal metastasis, caused by direct cancer cell dissemination, is the most common pattern of postoperative recurrence; the prognosis of patients with peritoneal metastasis is very poor. Extensive intraoperative peritoneal lavage (EIPL) is one strategy that has been developed...
Outcomes of Extremely Preterm Infants With Birth Weight Less Than 400 g Little is known about the survival and neurodevelopmental outcomes of extremely preterm infants with low birth weight. More data is needed to facilitate decisions regarding the initiation of treatment and resuscitation in this population. In this retrospective cohort...
1. Oxaliplatin plus S-1 was non-inferior in terms of overall survival and progression free survival when compared to cisplatin plus S-1 in the treatment of patients with advanced gastric carcinoma. 2. Patients treated with oxaliplatin experienced significantly less toxicities such as anemia, febrile neutropenia, and leukopenia compared to those treated...
Image: PD 1. Meta-analysis of trials involving eradication of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) in asymptomatic individuals showed significant decrease in gastric cancer incidence compared to placebo. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Study Rundown: Infection from H. pylori has been strongly associated with an increased incidence of gastric cancer. However, the use and...
