Aim: The aim of the study was to evaluate the cost of minimally invasive surgery using a modified uncut Roux-en-Y anastomosis technique in laparoscopic distal radical gastrectomy patients with gastric cancer. Methods: Clinical and cost data were reviewed on the perioperative outcomes of 15 gastric cancer patients who received laparoscopic distal radical gastrectomy using uncut Roux-en-Y anastomosis from January 2016 to December 2016 in the Department of Gastrointestinal Surgery, Shanghai East Hospital. Results: The mean operation time was 175 ± 30 min. Mean hospitalization expense was 9829 USD and mean linear stapler expense was 2940 USD. Laparoscopic distal radical gastrectomy with uncut Roux-en-Y anastomosis was successfully carried out in all the patients. There were no serious complications and no death in this series. Conclusion: Modified uncut Roux-en-Y anastomosis in laparoscopic distal radical gastrectomy may be a good way to balance the cost and minimally invasive surgery.
