For the past 40 years, investigators have suggested that there exists an increased risk of stomach cancer following gastric surgery for benign disease.
Recent cohort studies have consistently identified an increased risk of stomach cancer beginning 20 years or more following gastric surgery.
Validation of this association and elucidation of risk factors related to gastric cancer have been complicated by variability in study designs.
This cohort study was designed to investigate the risk of stomach cancer following gastric surgery and to identify patient and treatment characteristics that may alter this risk.
