Abstract

Laparoscopic wedge resection for treating a gastric submucosal tumor is a widely accepted and feasible procedure. As the skills for performing laparoscopic surgery have been developed, a great deal of effort has also been given to minimize the size of the abdominal wound and its scar. Some studies have introduced single port laparoscopic surgery for these purposes, but most of these single port laparoscopic surgeries were carried out to perform appendectomy and cholecystectomy. There have been fewer reports on this for gastric surgeries. We report here on 2 cases of single port laparoscopic gastric wedge resection for treating gastric submucosal tumor.
