Laparoscopic Subpyloric LN Dissection for Gastric Cancer
Lymph node dissection in the subpyloric region is an important part of laparoscopic radical gastrectomy, which mainly includes the No. 6 LNs dissection, also known as the subpyloric LNs. Some cases may also require the dissection of the No.14v LNs [LNs located at the root of the superior mesenteric vein (SMV)] (Fig. 2.1).
