TREITZ LAPAROSCOPIC RESECTION WITH INTRACORPOREAL ANASTOMOSIS WITH A NEW BARBED SUTURE

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are rare mesenchymal neoplasms of the gastrointestinal tract; life-threatening hemorrhage or intestinal obstruction are the most common presenting symptoms. In the last year we observed four patients affected by GIST of the small bowel presenting with a massive bleeding. After the endoscopic diagnosis, all the neoplasms were ink marked.
We present a video showing a Treitz’s GIST treated with a laparoscopic resection, followed by a mechanical latero-lateral intracorporeal anastomosis and enterotomy closure using a new kind of self-anchoring barbed suture (V-Loc advanced wound closure device-Covidien, Mansfield, MA).
