This video demonstrates a hybrid laparoscopic transgastric resection of a GIST located close to the gastroesophageal junction in a 79-year-old woman. The patient underwent neo-adjuvant therapy with Glivec™ (imatinib), which reduced the size of the tumor. This approach was chosen in order to avoid a major gastric resection.
