A total of 984 patients were enrolled and assigned into four groups: open gastrectomies (OG) with SC (OG + SC group, n = 167); OG with FT programs (OG + FT group, n = 277); laparoscopic gastrectomies (LG) with FT programs (LG + FT group, n = 248); and robot-assisted gastrectomies (RG) with FT programs (RG + FT group, n = 292).
As Roux-en-Y anastomoses have become popular with partial gastrectomies and Whipple's procedures, they too are prone to both forms of obstruction around the jejuno-jejunal Roux-en-Y anastomosis (Figs 2b and 5), possibly even more so.

* Roux-en-Y gastric bypass was performed laparoscopically in 89% of cases, as were 3% of sleeve gastrectomies and two-thirds of biliopancreatic diversion/ duodenal switches.
For the study, researchers examined the surgical characteristics and oncologic outcomes of 30 patients who underwent laparoscopic gastrectomy and compared them to 30 patients who had open gastrectomies.
