Treitz laparoscopic resection with intracorporeal anastomosis with a new barbed suture
Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are rare mesenchymal neoplasms of the gastrointestinal tract. Life-threatening hemorrhage or intestinal obstruction are the most common presenting symptoms. In the last year, we observed four patients affected by GIST of the small bowel presenting with a massive bleeding. After the endoscopic diagnosis, all the neoplasms were ink marked.
We present a video showing a Treitz’s GIST treated with a laparoscopic resection, followed by a mechanical latero-lateral intracorporeal anastomosis and enterotomy closure using a new kind of self-anchoring barbed suture (V-Loc® advanced wound closure device-Covidien, Mansfield, MA).
