Methods: Patients who underwent surgery for benign or malignant diseases of the esophagus, esophagogastric junction, or stomach during October 2018-December 2019 were included. Outcomes compared between ERAS and conventional care (CC) included length of hospital stay (LOS), postoperative complica....[more]

Methods: A retrospective cohort study was conducted on patients treated for GIST from June 2008 to April 2018 in a tertiary center. Sixty-two cases were eligible for the study.

Results: The stomach was the commonest tumor site. The incidence of tumor residue was higher in extra-gastric (intestinal) GISTs. Laparoscopy was more frequently used in gastric GIST surgery. Overall....[more]
