(Online) [online]. 2010, vol.31, n.4, pp.803-811. ISSN 1983-1447. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1983-14472010000400026.
This study aimed to analyze the scientific production about patients with gastric cancer submitted to gastrectomy and describing important aspects of nursing guidelines for these patients. An integrative review was carried out using Literatura Latino-Americana e do Caribe em Ciências da Saúde (LILACS) and Medical Literature Analysis and Retrieval System Online (MEDLINE) databases and twenty two articles were analyzed. Retrospective cross-sectional studies were the most frequent and the scientific production of nursing is numerically small in relation to the medical area. It is concluded that the approaches related to pré and post-operative in gastrectomy for gastric cancer resection subsidize the knowledge of issues essential for the nurse to promote efficient intervention for the recovery of such patients. There is still the need for further research on the practice of nursing in the guidelines of this kind of surgery.
