Abstract

BACKGROUND:

The clinicopathologic characteristics of duodenal gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) were unclear and the optimal surgical procedure for duodenal GIST remains poorly defined. We aimed to analyze clinicopathological characteristics, survival outcomes based on the surgical procedure, and recommend optimal surgical treatment for duodenal GIST.

METHODS:

From July 2000 to April 2017, 118 patients with localized duodenal GIST underwent curative surgical resection at a single institution. We retrospectively reviewed the clinicopathological characteristics and survival outcomes.

RESULTS:

The 5-year overall survival (OS) and disease-free survival (DFS) rates were 94.9 and 79.2%, respectively. On multivariate analysis, the mitotic count was a statistically significant prognostic factor for DFS. Limited resection (LR) was performed in 20 patients with GIST in the first or fourth portion of the duodenum. Both LR and pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) were performed in 98 patients with GIST in second or third portion of the duodenum. The patients in the LR group had less late complications than in the PD group and no postoperative newly developed diabetes mellitus. The minimally invasive LR (MI-LR) group had a shorter duration of surgery and shorter length of postoperative hospital stay.

CONCLUSION:

LR is a feasible and effective surgical treatment for patients with small-sized and antimesenteric-sided duodenal GIST in terms of late complications and postoperative diabetic complications. MI-LR has better perioperative outcomes than open LR. Therefore, we should consider MI-LR as an optimal surgical treatment for selected patients with duodenal GIST.
