The overall purpose is to develop and maintain a multi-institutional database comprising of information regarding surgical, clinical and oncological features of patients that will be treated for gastric cancer with robotic, laparoscopic or open approaches and subsequent follow-up.
The main objective is to compare the three surgical arms on surgical and clinical outcomes, as well as on the oncological follow-up.

|Gastric Cancer||Procedure: Robotic Gastrectomy Procedure: Laparoscopic Gastrectomy|
A review of the scientific literature, which was recently published by the IMIGASTRIC study group, aimed to perform a more complete analysis of the current situation regarding performing minimally invasive surgery for gastric cancer. Significant limitations were found in the analyzed studies, including:
- Small samples of patients, mostly low-quality comparative studies
- Selection bias in the comparison groups (e.g. stage, extent of lymphadenectomy)
- Absence of subgroup analysis in significant research fields
- Lack of information on the surgical techniques adopted
A large prospective multicenter registry could thus be the optimal way to clarify the role of minimally invasive surgery for gastric cancer and permit the evaluation of its short and long-term effects. A working basis for analyzing outcomes of interest and obtaining directions for guidelines and future study developments can also be created. The following would be the main advantages of a large prospective multicenter registry:
- Achieving a large sample of patients
- Collecting multiple variables, allowing for the making of a comprehensive statistical report
- Standardizing the methodology to be adopted, thus increasing accuracy
- Bringing together the experiences of both East and West to discover shared points A prospective registry can become a powerful tool that can guide research in this field to new developments and pave the way for other investigational opportunities.

Patients who will be treated for gastric cancer with the assistance of the robotic surgical system
Procedure: Robotic Gastrectomy
Minimally invasive surgical approach, related to the availability of a robotic surgical system (eg Da Vinci surgical system), that allows a surgeon to perform surgery through a console and dedicated devices.
Patients who will be treated for gastric cancer through laparoscopic devices.
Procedure: Laparoscopic Gastrectomy
Minimally invasive surgical approach performed through traditional laparoscopy.
Patients who will be treated for gastric cancer with traditional open surgery.
- Rate of patients with intraoperative adverse events [ Time Frame: During surgery ]events other than the normal course of the surgery
- Mean of retrieved lymph nodes [ Time Frame: Within 30 days after surgery ]Count of retrieved lymph nodes at the histopathological examination of the surgical specimen
- Rate of patients alive [ Time Frame: 1 year after surgery ]subjects alive at the planned endpoint
- Rate of patients alive [ Time Frame: 2 year after surgery ]subjects alive at the planned endpoint
- Rate of patients alive [ Time Frame: 3 year after surgery ]subjects alive at the planned endpoint
- Rate of patients alive [ Time Frame: 4 year after surgery ]subjects alive at the planned endpoint
- Rate of patients alive [ Time Frame: 5 year after surgery ]subjects alive at the planned endpoint
- Mean post-operative hospital stay [ Time Frame: from the day after surgery to patient discharge, assessed up to 90 days ]hospital stay of the patients after surgery
- Rate of complications after discharge [ Time Frame: 5 year after surgery ]any surgical related event after patient's discharge
