Degree of postoperative complication influenced the overall survival and disease-free survival. The occurance of postoperative complications promoted a much shorter survival time regardless of the weekday of surgery, however, the effect of weekday of surgery was limited in the group with complications. Even so, effect of weekday of surgery or postoperative complications was weak in the patients with advanced tumor stage for the little chance of cure.
