Duodenal atresia and stenosis is a frequent cause of congenital intestinal obstruction occurring in 1 per 5,000 to 10,000 live births, affecting boys more commonly than girls. Current operative techniques and contemporary neonatal critical care result in a very low morbidity and mortality rate (5%). The laparoscopic repair of duodenal atresia can be safely and successfully performed, the cosmetic benefits are considerable and results are encouragingly in favour of using this approach. In this video, Dr. Hossein Allal shows the laparoscopic approach for the treatment of duodenal atresia using four trocars.
