Abstract
Introduction: Endoscopic submucosal dissection has been widely accepted as a standard treatment for early gastric cancers. However, endoscopic submucosal dissection for an early gastric remnant cancer post-proximal gastrectomy with jejunal interposition is not yet widespread.
Case Series: A large, flat, elevated lesion was detected in an 83-year-old male (Case 1), whereas two separate flat, elevated lesions were detected in a 75-year-old male (Case 2). Successful curative en bloc resection of these lesions by endoscopic submucosal dissection using the insulation-tipped diathermic knife-2 revealed well-differentiated adenocarcinoma confined to the mucosa. No postoperative bleeding nor perforation was observed in the present cases.
Conclusion: These cases underscore the importance of periodic upper gastrointestinal endoscopy follow-up and the value of endoscopic submucosal dissection using the insulation-tipped diathermic knife-2 for treating early gastric remnant cancers post-proximal gastrectomy in the presence of interposed jejunum, even when extensive removal is necessary.

Keywords: Early gastric remnant cancer, Endoscopic submucosal dissection, Proximal gastrectomy, Insulation-tipped diathermic knife-2
