To compare the short-term efficacy between totally laparoscopic distal gastrectomy(TLDG) with delta-shaped anastomosis (DS) and laparoscopic-assisted distal gastrectomy (LADG) with BrillrothI ( anastomosis (BI(), and to evaluate the application of DS.


Between March 2013 and February 2014, 50 patients underwent TLDG with DS using linear staplers, and 43 patients underwent LADG with BI( using circular staplers. Clinical features and short-term efficacy of the two groups were analyzed retrospectively.


There were no significant differences between the two groups in terms of demographic indicators, operation time, intraoperative blood loss, number of removal lymph node, time to first flatus, incidence of complication and postoperative discharge day(all P>0.05). First-day postoperative pain was milder (3.1 ± 1.0 vs. 4.6 ± 1.4), and operative incision was shorter [(3.4 ± 0.4) cm vs. (6.9 ± 0.8) cm] significantly in TLDG with DS group(P<0.05).


TLDG with DS is safe and feasible for patients with gastric cancer, and has more advantages in cosmetic and comfort level than LADG with BI.
