Abstract

A 71-year-old man was diagnosed with locally advanced gastric cancer(cT4b[Panc], N2, M0, cStage III C). He was treated with a triplet neoadjuvant chemotherapy regimen including docetaxel, oxaliplatin and S-1, followed by laparoscopic total gastrectomy with pancreatosplenectomy which achieved R0 resection. He had no pancreatic fistula, leakage and abscess and was transferred to other hospital on POD18 for rehabilitation. Adjuvant chemotherapy wish S-1was started on 7 weeks after surgery. Although multidisciplinary treatment such as perioperative chemotherapy and radical surgery is necessary, careful and precise interpretation of diagnostic image is mandatory for undergoing curative surgery with composite resection laparoscopically. In this report, we demonstrated that totally laparoscopic radical surgery safely and allowed the patient to initiate adjuvant chemotherapy in the early postoperative period.
