Abstract BACKGROUND: The treatment of metachronous Krukenberg tumor (mKT) from gastric cancer remains unexplored. We performed a literature review to evaluate whether or not surgical treatment improves survival. METHODS: A systematic review according to PRISMA guidelines was performed. Studies reporting on patients who underwent surgical treatment for mKT from gastric cancer were selected. Metachronous disease was divided as follows: confined to the ovaries, confined to the pelvis, or beyond the pelvis. Outcomes evaluated included overall survival (OS), progression-free survival (PFS), resection rate (R0), and factors predicting survival. RESULTS: 13 retrospective reports fulfilled the selection criteria (512 patients). Most of the patients presented at a premenopausal age. The median presentation interval from gastrectomy ranged from 16 to 21.4 months. Median OS ranged between 9 and 36 months. 1-year OS ranged between 52.5 and 59%, and 3-years OS between 9.8 and 36.5%. Resection margin, peritoneal seeding, and chemotherapy regimen and cycles influenced survival. CONCLUSION: Surgical treatment and adjuvant chemotherapy in patients with mKT from gastric cancer seems to be associated with improved survival and is justified especially in young patients. Disease location and R0 resection should be considered when selecting patients. © 2018 S. Karger GmbH, Freiburg.

Abstract

Abstract BACKGROUND: The treatment of metachronous Krukenberg tumor (mKT) from gastric cancer remains unexplored. We performed a literature review to evaluate whether or not surgical treatment improves survival. METHODS: A systematic review according to PRISMA guidelines was performed. Studies reporting on patients who underwent surgical treatment for mKT from gastric cancer were selected. Metachronous disease was divided as follows: confined to the ovaries, confined to the pelvis, or beyond the pelvis. Outcomes evaluated included overall survival (OS), progression-free survival (PFS), resection rate (R0), and factors predicting survival. RESULTS: 13 retrospective reports fulfilled the selection criteria (512 patients). Most of the patients presented at a premenopausal age. The median presentation interval from gastrectomy ranged from 16 to 21.4 months. Median OS ranged between 9 and 36 months. 1-year OS ranged between 52.5 and 59%, and 3-years OS between 9.8 and 36.5%. Resection margin, peritoneal seeding, and chemotherapy regimen and cycles influenced survival. CONCLUSION: Surgical treatment and adjuvant chemotherapy in patients with mKT from gastric cancer seems to be associated with improved survival and is justified especially in young patients.
