Introduction
Laparoscopy-assisted radical total gastrectomy is technically demanding.

Aim
To introduce the “enjoyable space” approach to achieve D2 plus complete mesogastrium excision (CME) and to investigate its safety and feasibility.

Material and methods
Between January 2015 and December 2017, 165 patients with primary advanced upper gastric cancer underwent laparoscopy-assisted radical total gastrectomy. Among these patients, 81 underwent conventional D2 total gastrectomy (D2 group) and 84 underwent D2 plus CME total gastrectomy (D2 + CME group). Clinicopathological characteristics, surgical outcomes and postoperative complications were compared between the two groups.

Results
There were no significant differences between the two groups (p > 0.05) in clinicopathological characteristics. However, the D2 + CME group had a longer mean operative time, lower mean blood loss and slightly higher mean number of retrieved lymph nodes (LNs) than the D2 group (p < 0.05 each). The mean time to first flatus, liquid diet, and soft diet and the duration of hospital stay were similar between the two groups (p > 0.05 each). No significant difference in postoperative complication rates was found between the groups (16.0% vs. 9.5%, p > 0.05).

Conclusions
The “enjoyable space” approach is an option to achieve D2 + CME, and its safety and feasibility over conventional method are confirmed with lower intraoperative blood loss and more harvested LNs.
