Abstract

Delayed gastric emptying after distal gastrectomy and reconstruction of alimentary tract with a gastroenteric anastomosis can significantly influence early and late postoperative course and the length of hospital stay. The purpose of this study was to compare the effect on postoperative functional recovery of two different Roux-en-Y reconstructions: at the gastric greater curvature and at the transected gastric staple line in the Scopinaro's biliopancreatic diversion. We conducted comparative study; 80 patients were enrolled and divided in two groups: group A (RY-GC) and group B (RY-SL) with 40 patients in each group. We compared the early postoperative functional recovery for both groups measuring four parameters: gastric stasis indicated with the volume of the gastric fluid collected per 24 h, day of removal of the nasogastric tube, day of starting the oral intake, and day of hospital discharge. There was statistically significant (p∈
