Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Subject), Primary Purpose: Treatment
Name: bio-absorbable felt(NEOVEIL®)
Type: Device
Overall Status
This study is to evaluate if Bio-absorbable Felt(NEOVEIL®) makes the amount of exudate reduce and shortens time until drain removal after minimally invasive surgery for early gastric cancer.
Detailed Description
We investigate the effect on drainage amount of Bio-absorbable Felt(NEOVEIL®) after D1+b or D2 lymphadenectomy with distal gastrectomy for early gastric cancer.

This study is an randomised controlled trial undertaken in 7 centers in South Korea. Patients with stage I-II gastric cancer who is going to have curative distal gastrectomy with D1+b or D2 lymphadenectomy are randomly assigned to use bio-absorbable felt(NEOVEIL®) or not to use it. Block randomisation will be done by a central interactive computerised system, stratified by center.
