Palliative surgery for advanced gastric cancer has equivocal results. Laparoscopy is likely to provide some advantage compared to open procedures. We present a case of laparoscopic gastrojejunostomy for advanced gastric cancer, which recurred after Billroth I resection. Reproducing the results of the early experiences so far reported in the literature, laparoscopy provided us with the accurate staging of the disease along with the opportunity, at the same time, to perform a palliative procedure, avoiding laparotomy.

Abstract

Palliative surgery for advanced gastric cancer has equivocal results. Laparoscopy is likely to provide some advantage compared to open procedures. We present a case of laparoscopic gastrojejunostomy for advanced gastric cancer, which recurred after Billroth I resection. Reproducing the results of the early experiences so far reported in the literature, laparoscopy provided us with the accurate staging of the disease along with the opportunity, at the same time, to perform a palliative procedure, avoiding laparotomy. Operative results were good, vomiting was relieved, and the patient was able to cope with his disease until death eventually occurred after 6 months.
