This video shows a partial gastrectomy in a 63-year-old woman with a stage IB gastric cancer located at the distal third of the stomach. The lesion was located using intraoperatory endoscopy. We found an accessory left hepatic artery originating from the left gastric artery, which was preserved. The gastrojejunostomy was performed in a Roux-en-Y fashion. The alimentary limb was ascended through the transverse mesocolon. The jejunojejunostomy was performed in a latero-lateral fashion with closure of the ostium with simple Ethibond 2/0 stitches. The skin incision used for trocar placement in the upper left abdomen (right hand of the surgeon) was slightly enlarged to allow for specimen extraction.
