Background: Laparoscopic gastrectomy (LG) for remnant gastric cancer (RGC) remains controversial because of its rarity and heterogeneity of clinical characteristics. Based on our experience, we posited that our established methodology in LG could be applied to the laparoscopic procedure for RGC surgery and introduced LG for RGC at our institution in 2004. Methods: This study enrolled 46 patients who underwent LG for RGC between January 2004 and December 2017. Data were obtained through a review of our prospectively maintained database. Laparoscopic total gastrectomy (LTG) was the standard surgical procedure for RGC. Laparoscopic subtotal gastrectomy (LsTG) was performed as an alternative procedure for patients with RGC located near the anastomotic site after primary gastrectomy. The technical and oncological feasibility and safety of LG for RGC were evaluated. Results: LTG for RGC was performed on 36 patients. LsTG for RGC was performed on 10 patients. All patients completed LG procedure and succeeded R0 resection. Complications of Clavien–Dindo classification grade ≥ IIIa occurred in 4 (8.7%) patients. The retrospective video reviews showed that the time for adhesiotomy around the suprapancreatic area and the lesser curvature of the remnant stomach was significantly shorter in the primary-benign group than in the primary-malignant group. With the median follow-up period of 40 months, the 3-year recurrence-free survival and 3-year overall survival rates were 72.3% and 80.2%, respectively. Conclusion: LG for RGC represents a safe and feasible surgical option with favorable short-term and long-term outcomes in patients with RGC.
