Gastric cancer is a rare condition affecting patients with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). The mainstay of treatment is total gastrectomy. Since duodenal cancer is the most common cause of death after total colectomy in FAP, endoscopic surveillance for duodenal cancer is mandatory. Here, we describe the use of an isoperistaltic jejunal loop interposition technique to reconstruct the digestive tract after total gastrectomy in 2 patients with FAP. There were no early or late complications. Both patients are still alive and in good clinical condition. They did not experience weight loss or symptoms of dumping syndrome. Duodenal endoscopic surveillance after this technique was easier than after the classical Roux-en-Y reconstruction. Hence, regular follow-up was possible for both patients.

Abstract

Gastric cancer is a rare condition affecting patients with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). The mainstay of treatment is total gastrectomy. Since duodenal cancer is the most common cause of death after total colectomy in FAP, endoscopic surveillance for duodenal cancer is mandatory. Here, we describe the use of an isoperistaltic jejunal loop interposition technique to reconstruct the digestive tract after total gastrectomy in 2 patients with FAP. There were no early or late complications. Both patients are still alive and in good clinical condition. They did not experience weight loss or symptoms of dumping syndrome. Duodenal endoscopic surveillance after this technique was easier than after the classical Roux-en-Y reconstruction. Hence, regular follow-up was possible for both patients.
