Background: There are few comprehensive studies on the prognosis of patients with suprapancreatic lymph node (LN) metastasis. In the present study, we evaluated prognostic factors in gastric cancer patients with suprapancreatic LN metastasis.
Methods: Between June 1982 and February 2004, 62 patients with suprapancreatic LN metastasis underwent radical gastrectomy and LN dissection at Oita University. Clinicopathologic factors of advanced gastric cancer with metastatic suprapancreatic LN were examined by univariate and multivariate analysis to identify prognostic factors.
Results: Five-year survival was associated with growth type (localized vs. infiltrative; P<0.01), depth of invasion (Muscularis propria or subserosa vs. exposed beyond the serosa or invasion to adjuvant organ; P<0.01), number of metastatic LNs (<7 vs. ≥ 7; P<0.01), and number of metastatic suprapancreatic LNs (1 vs. ≥ 2; P<0.01). By univariate analysis, localized growth type, an absence of serosal invasion, a metastatic LN count <7, and only 1 metastatic suprapancreatic LN were identified as good prognostic factors. By multivariate analysis, only 1 metastatic suprapancreatic LN was identified as independent prognostic factors. With analysis using the Kaplan- Meier method, there was a significant difference between these two factors.
Conclusions: Only one metastatic suprapancreatic LN was prognostic factors in advanced gastric cancer with suprapancreatic LN metastasis.
