It has already been demonstrated that laparoscopic gastrectomy is a safe approach for early gastric cancer. It can provide the same oncological outcomes as open gastrectomy with the benefit of fewer complications and early recovery. Liver transplantation has a high incidence rate in the Korean population, just like gastric cancer. Additionally, South Korea has the highest incidence of this type of cancer worldwide. Patients who had received a liver transplant might benefit from a better recovery thanks to laparoscopic gastrectomy, and this approach can be performed by experienced surgeons. Please add in the text narrative how you performed the anastomosis.
