Gastrectomy for benign lesions: classic partial gastrectomy, variation: antrectomy
The description of the classic partial gastrectomy for benign lesions and its variation: antrectomy covers all aspects of the surgical procedure used for the management of benign gastric tumors. Operating room set up, position of patient and equipment, instruments used are thoroughly described. The technical key steps of the surgical procedure are presented in a step by step way: surgical approach, principles, mobilization of greater curvature, mobilization/transection, gastrojejunal anastomosis, gastroduodenal anastomosis, difficult duodenums, freeing of the curvature, transection of the stomach, restoration/continuity, Billroth I anastomosis, Billroth II anastomosis.
