This video shows a laparoscopic partial gastrectomy of a gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) with a low mitotic count located at the lesser curvature of the stomach. This low-grade tumor was found as the patient complained of chronic abdominal pain. The CT-scan evidenced the presence of a 5 by 6cm lesion at the lesser curvature between the anterior and posterior aspect of the stomach. No metastatic lesion was found during the preoperative work-up. Gastroscopy showed an extrinsic lesion at the lesser curvature of the stomach and an approximately 5 by 6cm GIST was suspected. This is why the laparoscopic approach was decided upon.
