A Case of Robotic Distal Pancreatectomy for Pancreatic Metastasis of Gastric Cancer

研究成果: ジャーナルへの寄稿学術論文査読


A 78-year-old male who had received laparoscopic total gastrectomy for upper gastric cancer 30 months ago(pT3N0, pStage ⅡB)was referred for further treatment for a 30-mm in size mass at the splenic hilum. The mass was suspected of lymph node metastasis was suspected. Two courses of SOX therapy failed to achieve the tumor response. Since there was no other metastasis, surgical treatment was indicated. Robot distal pancreatectomy with splenectomy was performed. There was no finding of peritoneal metastasis during the operation. The operative time was 384 min, the blood loss 22 mL, respectively. The postoperative course was uneventful, and he was discharged on the 12th postoperative day. The histopathological examination found that the resected mass was pancreatic metastasis of gastric cancer. Despite 3 courses of SOX therapy after the operation, the tumor recurred at the liver and paraaortic lymph nodes 2 months later. The second-line ramucirumab plus paclitaxel was started and has continued for 11 months with partial response. Although oncological benefit of surgical resection for isolated metastasis of gastric cancer, including pancreatic metastasis, was unclear, the robotic approach for such an atypical case was safe and feasible, leading to smooth initiation of postoperative systemic therapy.
