Aim: The aim of this study is to evaluate the results of a single and common approach for transgastric submucosal excision of small- to medium-sized gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GIST) having different locations in upper two-third of the stomach by pure minimally invasive approach.
Materials and Methods: A retrospective study from February 2012 to January 2015 on 11 patients was conducted including both male and female. Their age ranged from 40 to 65 years. All were subjected to laparoscopic transgastric submucosal excision of GIST in upper two-third of the stomach with 1 cm margin having different locations in stomach. Excised tumours were subjected to histopathological study. These patients were followed for 12 months assessing operative time, post-operative complications, conversion rates, morbidity, hospital stay and recurrence rate.
Results: Duration of surgery was 150.6 ± 20.4 min. Mean hospital stay was 8 (range: 7–10) days. There were no post-operative complications. There were no conversions to open procedure. There were no recurrences. Morbidity was comparable to any other laparoscopic procedures.
Conclusion: We conclude that a single and common approach of transgastric submucosal excision of small- to medium-sized stromal tumours with 1 cm margin having different locations in upper two-third of stomach, by pure minimally invasive approach, has a better outcome and brings a uniformity in laparoscopic management of GIST.
