Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To compare the incidence of postoperative long-term complications and quality of life between two digestive tract reconstruction techniques after total gastrectomy in order to provide evidence for clinical practice.

METHODS: A systematic literature search was carried out to obtain studies of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) of reconstruction techniques including jejunal interposition and Roux-en-Y. Data extracted from RCTs for meta-analysis were independently assessed by two reviewers. A meta-analysis was performed by RevMan5.0 software.

RESULTS: A total of 1628 gastric cancer cases undergoing total gastrectomy from 10 RCTs were eligible for inclusion, among whom 728 received jejunal interposition reconstruction and 954 Roux-en-Y anastomosis. As compared with Roux-en-Y anastomosis, jejunal interposition reconstruction significantly decreased the incidence of dumping syndrome (OR=0.19, 95%CI:0.11-0.34, P<0.01), increased the prognostic nutritional index (WMD=6.02, 95%CI:1.82-10.22, P<0.01), and improved the body weight postoperatively (WMD=-2.45, 95%CI:-3.81--1.71, P<0.01). Meanwhile, jejunal interposition reconstruction did not prolong operative time and hospital stay (both P>0.05).

CONCLUSION: Jejunal interposition has better efficacy than Roux-en-Y in dumping syndrome and quality of life, and is a reasonable and effective digestive tract reconstruction for long-term survival of gastric cancer patients.

CRD has determined that this article meets the DARE scientific quality criteria for a systematic review.
