The aim of this review was to investigate if laparoscopic surgery reduces the immunological response compared to open surgery in gastric cancer.METHODS: We conducted a literature search identifying relevant studies comparing laparoscopy or laparoscopic-assisted surgery with open gastric surgery. The main outcome was postoperative immunological status defined as surgical stress parameters, including inflammatory cytokines and blood parameters.RESULTS: We identified seven studies that addressed the immunological status in patients undergoing laparoscopic or laparoscopy-assisted surgery compared to open surgery. IL-6 in circulation was found to be significantly reduced in laparoscopic patients. Furthermore, the plasma concentration of C-reactive protein was significantly lower in laparoscopic patients compared to patients undergoing laparotomy.

Larger and prospective studies are needed to further evaluate if the immunological status is relatively preserved in minimal invasive surgery and if this may reduce the postoperative complications compared to open surgery.",
