Abstract/OtherAbstract:
PURPOSE: Interruption of the right gastroepiploic artery (RGEA) used for prior coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) may cause life-threatening myocardial ischemia during gastrectomy. This study investigated the cases treated in this department and pooled data in the literature to identify an adequate perioperative RGEA management strategy. METHODS: Eight patients underwent gastrectomy after CABG with the RGEA. This study examined conditions, management of the RGEA, No. 6 lymph node metastasis, and complications of these cases and those in the pooled data. RESULTS: Percutaneous coronary intervention or a redo CABG was performed in advance in 7 and 1 patients, respectively. The RGEA was resected for dissection of No. 6 lymph nodes in 6 patients. Five patients had lymph node metastasis. Thirty-seven patients from 40 combined cases (92.5 %) underwent total or distal gastrectomy, but 17 patients (42.5 %) had RGEA resection. Resections of the RGEA and No. 6 lymph node metastasis were significantly higher in patients with perioperative coronary management than in those without such management. CONCLUSION: Coronary and celiac angiography and coronary revascularization are prerequisites to prevent cardiac events during gastrectomy and dissection of No. 6 lymph nodes should be performed with resection of RGEA. Standard lymph node dissection should therefore be performed with a curative intent for all patients even those undergoing gastrectomy after CABG using RGEA.
