Abstract

MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 22 patients with GIST of the stomach resected by laparoscopic or open procedures between January 2006 and February 2014.

RESULTS: Laparoscopic resections were performed in 9 patients and open resections in 13 patients. Curative resections with negative resection margins were successfully completed for all patients. Although the size of the tumors was greater in open surgery cases than in laparoscopic patients (P = 0.03), the loss of blood was lower and the hospital stay was shorter in laparoscopic cases (P = 0.01 and 0.003, respectively). Laparoscopic resection was performed for 2 patients with GISTs larger than 5 cm. Both were located at greater curvature, and curatively resected without any complications or recurrence.

DISCUSSION: Our experience suggests that laparoscopic surgery for GISTs of the stomach, including those larger than 5 cm, may be feasible after careful deliberation of its indications. Laparoscopic resection for GIST was associated with lower loss of blood and shorter hospital stay in comparison with open resection.

INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic resection has been reported as reasonable for patients with gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs). In this study, we report the feasibility of the laparoscopic approach for GIST of the stomach. We also discuss the laparoscopic approach for GIST larger than 5 cm, which is reported to be difficult to treat by laparoscopic surgery.
