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. 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...
