In this video, a young woman presenting with abdominal pain was investigated. The diagnosis of an 8cm GIST tumor was established through imaging studies and endoscopic biopsy. A laparoscopic partial gastrectomy was carried out preserving the antrum. The resection involved 3 staplers and allowed to keep a 2cm safety margin. The postoperative course was uneventful. Pathological findings confirmed a high-grade GIST tumor.
