Laparo-endoscopic combined approach for excision of gastrointestinal stromal tumour close to the oesophagogastric junction.

Vinnicombe Z, Little M, Wan A - J Surg Case Rep (2015)

Bottom Line: Computed tomography (CT) scanning of a 68-year-old female demonstrated a lesion suspicious of a gastrointestinal stromal tumour located 2 cm from the OGJ on the posterior gastric wall.Gastroscopy 7 months post-op and follow-up CT scan at 5 years demonstrated no recurrence of the primary tumour and no new disease.Laparoscopic and endoscopic combined approach is a safe and effective method of removing tumours close to the OGJ.

Mentions: The patient was placed under general anaesthetic, optical access was acquired via the left upper quadrant of the abdomen using a 12-mm Xcel® (Ethicon) trocar and CO2 pneumoperitoneum was created. Two 5-mm Xcel® (Ethicon) trocars, one 12-mm Xcel® (Ethicon) trocar and a Nathanson liver retractor (Fig. 2A) were inserted under direct vision.Figure 2:
