Abstract
Quality of life (QoL) has become an important issue after early gastric cancer (EGC) treatment. We aimed to compare the QoL of EGC survivors after ESD (n = 241) or laparoscopic subtotal gastrectomy (n = 241) without recurrence and to evaluate the QoL over the 5-year period after adjusting for various confounding factors related to QoL. QoL related to the gastric cancer subscale (GCS) was significantly higher in the ESD group than surgery group (p < 0.001). After adjusting for all possible confounding factors, survivors who underwent ESD still had higher QoL related to CSG than those who underwent surgery. On the analysis of interaction effects for all QoL subscales, higher QoL related to GCS of ESD group than those of surgery group has been kept over time (p = 0.983). Therefore, we concluded that EGC survivors who undergo ESD have significantly better QoL related to GCS over a 5-year period after treatment than those who undergo surgery. This may be a useful consideration when selecting treatment modalities for patients with EGC. © 2020, The Author(s).
