Resum

Gastric cancer remains a significant global health challenge with varied survival rates, emphasizing the need for research into effective surgical treatments. In this retrospective study, we compared the 72-month overall and disease-free survival between laparoscopic gastrectomy (LG) and laparoscopic-assisted gastrectomy (AG) in a cohort of 139 patients treated for gastric cancer. The analysis revealed that patients undergoing LG exhibited a significantly higher overall survival rate at 72 months compared to those undergoing AG. Although disease-free survival rates were comparable between the two groups, LG showed a marginal advantage. Subgroup analyses based on the type of gastrectomy and anastomosis demonstrated varied survival probabilities, with laparoscopic-assisted partial gastrectomy yielding the most favorable outcomes. These results highlight the importance of the choice of surgical technique in influencing survival outcomes in gastric cancer.
