Incidence of gastrectomies has been increased rapidly worldwide in the last four decades. There is a wide variety of gastric benign or malignant pathology which necessitate a partial or complete removal of the stomach. This includes peptic ulcer diseases, gastric submucosal tumors, obesity and its related diseases and gastric malignancy. Therefore, the importance of stomach surgery from a nutritional point of view should be reviewed. It is not uncommonly neglected by clinicians despite being important and frequent long-term metabolic complications. The incidence and timing of the occurrence of malnutrition following gastrectomy are closely associated with the extent of gastrectomy and the reconstruction method used patient’s general initial condition and the underlying pathology.
