Successful conversion surgery rates in the subgroup analysis regarding the location of distant metastases. Subgroup 1: Patients with either single liver metastasis, para-aortic lymph node metastasis, or positive cytology were excluded (N = 33). Subgroup 2: Patients with no evidence of peritoneal metastasis were included (N = 28). In the subgroup 1, the successful CS rates were 0 and 17.7% in the patients with NLR ≥ 4 and NLR < 4, respectively (P = 0.03). In the subgroup 2, the successful CS rates were 10.0 and 61.1% in the patients with NLR ≥ 4 and NLR < 4, respectively (P = 0.005)
