Since there is no abstract available we provide the first paragraph.
Although laparoscopic resection for colon cancer has become the treatment of choice in the treatment of colon cancer in specialized institutions, such an evidence is still lacking for laparoscopic gastrectomy for gastric cancer. With exception Korea and Japan , sporadic are the reports of laparoscopic D2 gastrectomy for advanced resectable gastric cancer in other countries. In this comment the results of such laparoscopic D2 surgery are discussed.
