Fully Laparoscopic Total Gastrectomy with Double Staple Anastomosis

Contributor: Joseph Kim

This video demonstrates a fully laparoscopic total gastrectomy using a double-staple technique that facilitates the safe and effective creation of an esophagojejunal anastomosis. Fully laparoscopic total gastrectomy provides distinct advantages over the open laparotomy technique. An elderly gentleman was found to be anemic on routine bloodwork exam. Subsequent upper endoscopy revealed gastric cancer of the cardia, necessitating complete gastric resection. This video demonstrates a fully laparoscopic total gastrectomy using a double staple technique that facilitates the safe and effective creation of an esophagojejunal anastomosis.

Spleen Preserving Laparoscopic Distal Pancreatectomy for a Solid Pseudopapillary Tumor

Contributors:  Bestoun Ahmed

Spleen preservation is advisable if feasible during distal pancreatectomy for benign pancreatic tumors. A 31 year old patient had a blunt abdominal injury. Computed Tomography (CT) scan showed an incidental tumor in the body of the pancreas. EUS-guided cytology revealed a solid pseudopapillary tumor with benign features.This video demonstrates the technical details during a minimally invasive excision of a rare tumor of the pancreas in a male patient. Very few cases have been reported in males.

Stapled Ileoanal Reservoir for Restorative Ileal Pouch Anal Anastomosis

Contributors: Roger Hurst and Neil Hyman

This video demonstrates the approach to stapled ileoanal reservoir (Ileal pouch anal anastomosis (IPAA)) construction initiated utilizing enterotomy at the future reservoir inlet.  This approach has the advantage of permitting reservoir eversion during construction to ensure hemostasis and limiting the apical enterotomy to a stab puncture for the sharp anvil trochar.  Dr. F. Michelassi and Dr. G.E. Block originally described this technique in 1993, and the authors have made minor adaptations (1)
