Laparoscopic approaches to resection of suspected gastric gastrointestinal stromal tumors based on tumor location

Abstract

Surgical resection of gastric gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) should be optimized to achieve a negative pathologic surgical margin while limiting the extent of stomach volume loss. Careful identification of exact gastric tumor location using preoperative computed tomography (CT) scans and gastroscopy should allow for selection of a specific operative… (More)
