This video is a 'live' recorded surgery performed by Dr Dallemagne during a digestive surgery course. The 4 cm tumor is delivered through a gastrotomy performed by laparoscopy. The tumor is then resected by application of an endoscopic stapler. Finally, the gastrotomy is closed. This is a simple technique applicable to the vast majority of digestive surgeons.
