Gastric cancer is a common malignancy worldwide and a common cause of cancer death. Despite recent advances in multimodal treatment and targeted therapy, complete gastric resection and D2 lymph node dissection remain the only treatment that can lead to cure. Nowadays, laparoscopic method is used for gastric cancer surgery, which provides an alternative to open technique. The successful application of the laparoscopic distal gastrectomy with D2 dissection for gastric cancer requires adequate understanding of the variations of gastric vascular anatomy as well as the anatomic characteristics. In this report, we present our laparoscopic subtotal gastrectomy with D2 lymph node dissection and jejunal Roux-en-Y reconstruction technique in a patient with aberrant left hepatic artery.
