Further study details as provided by Fudan University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in QOL (Quality of Life) [ Time Frame: 5years ]
    From preoperative following gastrectomy, as measured with the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) QLQ-C30 and QLQ-STO22 questionnaires.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Nutritional status of patients [ Time Frame: 5 years ]

Estimated Enrollment: 140
Study Start Date: May 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: May 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: May 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Total Gastrectomy or Proximal Gastrectomy Other: Total Gastrectomy or Proximal Gastrectomy

Detailed Description:
Overall, the incidence of stomach cancer worldwide is declining with geographical variation. However, an increase in the incidence rate of adenocarcinoma of esophagogastric junction, called cardia or AEG has been observed in recent years. AEG may represent a specific histopathological and biologic entity. In the treatment AEG there is argument over whether proximal gastractomy(PG) or total gastractomy (TG) should be done. The quality of life (QOL) of the patients following TG or PG arouses people's attention. The purpose of this study was to evaluate differences of the quality of life in patients undergoing total gastrectomy or proximal gastrectomy for adenocarcinoma of esophagogastric junction.
