Core Tip Inverse probability of treatment weighting (IPTW) attempts to reduce the bias due to confounding variables in estimates of treatment effects. In the present study, we compared the surgical outcomes and survival of elderly gastric cancer patients with that of general population after IPTW. The overall survival of pStage Ⅰ gastric cancer patients in elderly was lower survival due to death of other diseases. We found that extent of lymph nodes dissection were independent prognostic factors. When the gastrectomy was performed in gastric cancer patients, we should recognized high mortality and comorbidities in that of elderly. This study was reviewed and approved by Nara Hospital, Kindai University review board on human research.
