Intragastric tumors represent a challenging pathology to treat with a minimally invasive approach because of their position and size. The possibility to combine both endoscopy and intragastric endoscopic surgery is of great value in these cases. This video shows such a combined endoscopic and laparoscopic approach to treat a stromal gastric tumor of the cardia. The endoscopy allows to choose a perfect position of laparoscopic access, depending on the tumor location. Furthermore, it provides the vision at the beginning of the intervention. After ablation of the tumor, a Triport is inserted into the stomach to close the gastric mucosa, allowing multiple transgastric access through a single gastrotomy.
