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...

Long-term impact of an educational antimicrobial stewardship programme in primary care on infections caused by extended-spectrum β-lactamase-producing Escherichia coli in the community: an interrupted time-series analysis. 1. A multi-modal antimicrobial stewardship program in primary care focused on individual educational interviews may improve antibiotic prescription practices and lead to sustained reductions...
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....
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...
