This is a video demonstrating laparoscopic total gastrectomy for adenocarcinoma. Mobilization of the greater omentum and stomach are presented in detail, together with vascular and lymph node dissection according to the Japanese gastric cancer classification. Finally, a stapled esophago-jejunostomy is performed for restoration of gastro-intestinal continuity. This is another case where Dr. Dallemagne, MD demonstrates how a complex resection can be undertaken laparoscopically using a stepwise approach.
