A case of a patient with gastric cancer and liver metastasis -a long-term survival of 10 years



A case of a patient with gastric cancer and liver metastasis -a long-term survival of 10 years



Gan to Kagaku Ryoho. Cancer and ChemoTherapy 39(12): 2375-2377



We report a case of patient who is alive 10 years after total gastrectomy and partial liver resection for gastric cancer and liver metastasis, respectively. The patient is 69-year-old man who was examined in another hospital for nausea, tarry stool, and weight loss. Diagnosis by stomach fluoroscopy revealed gastric cancer and he was admitted to our hospital in September 2002. Computed tomography (CT) scan and ultrasonography (US) revealed liver metastasis in S7. Distant metastases were not detected. The patient underwent distal gastrectomy, transverse colon partial resection, and a hepatic partial resection in October 2002. Pathological findings showed SI, N1, and M1. Though adjuvant chemotherapy was given, a local recurrence was detected in the liver in February 2003. Hepatic arterial infusion (HAI) was started in April 2003. After 8 courses, HAI was discontinued because of hepatic artery obstruction. No additional distant metastases were found. Therefore, transdiaphragmatic radiofrequency ablation (RFA) was performed by thoracotomy. Currently, the patient is treatment free and remains alive after 10 years with no recurrence.
