|| This retrospective study evaluated the short- and long-term outcomes after surgical management for gastric cancer in hemodialysis patients compared to non-dialysis patients. Twelve hemodialysis patients were compared with a propensity score-matched cohort of 39 gastric cancer patients who had not undergone hemodialysis. Short- and long-term outcomes along with scores estimating physiological ability and surgical stress were evaluated in both groups. The incidence of postoperative morbidity according to the Clavien-Dindo classification was higher in the hemodialysis gastric cancer group than in the non-dialysis gastric cancer group. The 5-year overall survival rate in the non-dialysis group was 69.2% after surgical resection for gastric cancer and 22.2% in the hemodialysis group. Patients with preoperative risk scores≥0.48 had significantly poorer survival outcomes compared to those with preoperative risk scores<0.48 (5-year survival rate, 83.3% vs. 39.4%, respectively). Our analyses suggest that hemodialysis patients undergoing surgery for gastric cancer have a significantly poorer postoperative prognosis and an elevated risk of postoperative complications.
