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.

RJV079F3: (A) Tumour elevation and stapler placement. (B) Staple line proximity to OGJ.

Mentions: The tumour was lifted away from the posterior wall with the grasper and a stapled excision performed using an endoGIA™ (Covidien) (Fig. 3A). The tumour was placed into an endobag™ and removed endoscopically, and the gastrotomies were closed with 2-0 vicryl. A crural repair and a partial fundoplication were completed with 2-0 ethibond™.Figure 3:
