Introduction
Totally laparoscopic total gastrectomy (TLTG) for advanced gastric cancer (AGC) has not been conclusively substantiated.

Aim
To evaluate TLTG treatment of AGC by comparing its effectiveness and surgical outcomes to those of TLTG treatment of early gastric cancer (EGC).

Material and methods
We performed TLTG with the (modified) overlap method for 149 gastric cancer cases between March 2012 and December 2018. We evaluated clinicopathologic characteristics, complications (including esophagojejunostomy site complications), and surgical outcomes. We also evaluated these variables in terms of their associations with EGC and AGC.

Results
Ninety-two males and 57 females, with a mean age of 60.7 years, were included. The mean operation time was 147.7 minutes. The mean number of harvested lymph nodes was 39.6. Thirteen (8.7%) patients experienced early complications, and 6 (4.0%) experienced late complications (Clavien-Dindo classification ≥ III). Eight (5.4%) patients underwent reoperation, and 8 (5.4%) were readmitted due to complications. There were no statistically significant differences in operation time, hospital stay, or surgical mortality between EGC and AGC. However, there were significant differences in early complications, late complications, rate of reoperation, and rate of readmission between EGC and AGC.

Conclusions
Although it has some limitations, TLTG with the (modified) overlap method for AGC treatment is feasible, safe, and associated with favorable outcomes.
