 We investigated the clinicopathological features of the reported26cases of gastric remnant cancer after corpofundectomy for gastric cancer and compared the results with our22cases of gastric remnant cancer after distal gastrectomy for gastric cancer. Remnant cancer after corpofundectomy developed at the non-surgical site of the stomach earlier than that after distal gastrectomy. The majority of the developed cancers were differentiated type. In addition, patients with jejunal interposition showed a longer interval between the previous operation and diagnosis of the remnant cancer and a higher incidenc of advanced stage cancer compared with patients with esophago-gastric anastomosis. The remnant stomach after corpofundectomy seems to be highly susceptible to gastric carcinogenesis. Based on the results, we conclude that pertinent reconstruction method and follow-up study after corpofundectomy is required.
