A chart review was conducted on 28 patients with gastric stump cancer who were radically treated at the First Department of Surgery of University "La Sapienza" of Rome between 1978 and 1990.

Abstract

A chart review was conducted on 28 patients with gastric stump cancer who were radically treated at the First Department of Surgery of University "La Sapienza" of Rome between 1978 and 1990. The data obtained were compared with those of 401 patients radically treated, in the same period, for primary cancer of the proximal third of the stomach. There were no significant differences between the two groups in terms of stage and nodal involvement. Surgical treatment was total gastrectomy in 86% of cases, and an extended procedure in 57% of patients. The morbidity rate was similar to patients treated for primary gastric cancer, as well the 5-year survival, which depend on the stage of disease. We can conclude that gastric stump cancer must be treated surgically with radical intent as the prognosis is similar to that of primary gastric cancer.
