Abstract

The para-aortic lymph nodes around the left renal vein (16a2lat) are now considered important to target in the treatment of advanced adenocarcinoma of the esophagogastric junction. We describe a laparoscopic approach for resecting these nodes. This new tunneling approach starts from the ligament of Treitz and then enters the retroperitoneal space. The left renal vein and left adrenal vein are dissected to identify the anatomy of the 16a2lat area. After this dissection, the 16a2lat nodes are retrieved through the suprapancreatic area. Six patients with advanced type II junctional cancer underwent laparoscopic 16a2lat lymph node dissection. The median operative time and estimated blood loss were 479 (390–750) min and 250 (130–500) ml, respectively. The median hospital stay was 22 (17–54) days and there were no deaths or serious complications. Although this series was relatively small, our technique proved effective and feasible.
