Current status of function-preserving gastrectomy for gastric cancer.

Ann Gastroenterol Surg 2021 May 27;5(3):278-286. Epub 2021 Jan 27.

Division of Digestive Surgery Department of Surgery Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine Kyoto Japan.

Early gastric cancer (EGC) has excellent postoperative survival outcomes; thus, one of the recent keywords in the treatment of EGC is "function-preserving gastrectomy (FPG)." FPG reduces the extent of lymphadenectomy and gastric resection without compromising the long-term prognosis. Proximal gastrectomy (PG) is an alternative to total gastrectomy (TG) for EGC in the upper-third of the stomach, in which the gastric reservoir, gastric acid secretion, and intrinsic factors are maintained.
