This is the case of a 70-year-old patient who underwent an esophagogastroduodenoscopy for gastric pain. The exam showed a 0.5cm prepyloric ulcerated lesion with Helicobacter pylori infection. After Helicobacter pylori eradication and a CT-scan negative for secondary lesions, the patient was scheduled for a distal gastrectomy with perioperative gastroscopy. In this original live educational video, Dr. Woo Jin Hyung describes his technique of laparoscopic distal gastrectomy with Roux-en-Y reconstruction and discusses several topics such as the comparison between laparoscopic and robotic gastrectomy, the indication for omentectomy, the choice of the surgical strategy considering the tumor location, the benefit of fluorescence in lymphatic mapping, the type of lymphadenectomy, the comparison of different energy devices and the choice of the reconstruction technique.
