Food residue is often seen in the gastric remnant after partial gastrectomy, making it difficult to diagnose early cancer in the residual stomach. The aims of this study were to clarify the risk factors for the accumulation of food residue, and to study methods of preparation for endoscopy in patients who had undergone distal gastrectomy.
374 endoscopic examinations of patients who had undergone distal gastrectomy for gastric cancer were compared with 2168 endoscopic examinations in patients without a history of gastrectomy.

Food retention and bile reflux has been frequently observed in gastric cancer patients following a subtotal gastrectomy. The aim of this study was to determine whether reconstruction methods after the distal subtotal gastrectomy influenced the degree of food residue and bile reflux.
The prospectively collected data was reviewed retrospectively for 522 patients with early gastric cancer who had undertaken a follow-up endoscopic examination after a distal subtotal gastrectomy between 2003 and 2006.

The aims of this article were to clarify the incidence of gastric remnant cancer after surgery for early gastric cancer, and to develop surveillance programs for patients who have undergone partial gastrectomy in order to detect such lesions at an early stage.
A total of 642 patients with partial gastrectomy for early gastric cancer were enrolled in a surveillance program for gastric remnant cancer between 1985 and 1996. In 509 patients, the interval between endoscopic examinations was no more than 2 years.

Early gastric cancer in the remnant stomach is rare. Periodical endoscopic examinations are mandatory for patients with partial gastrectomy for a good prognosis. Our goal is to improve the surgical management of gastric cancer in the remnant stomach.
