Weekday of Surgery Affects Postoperative Complications and Long-Term Survival of Chinese Gastric Cancer Patients after Curative Gastrectomy

Figure 1

Weekday of surgery or postoperative complications influenced the overall survival time and disease-free survival time after gastrectomy. The 5-year overall survival rate and disease-free survival rate was much lower in the patients who underwent surgery on Wednesday to Friday than those on Monday to Tuesday (a, b). Similarly, the patients with postoperative complications shared a much shorter overall survival and disease-free survival time than those without complications (c, d).
