The role of extensive resectional surgery, including total gastrectomy for the palliation of advanced gastric cancer is controversial. This study shows operative results with complications and mortality occurring after total gastrectomy in patients with advanced stage gastric carcinoma. The study included 83 (48 males and 35 females, median age was 54.6 +/- 11.4 years) patients who underwent palliative total gastrectomy or oesophagogastrectomy (distal oesophagectomy in continuity with total gastrectomy).
