Gastric Diverticulum Resection: A Minimally Invasive Approach

Melissa M Felinski, DO, Kevin M Tymitz, MD. TriHealth

We report the case of a 72 y/o male patient who was evaluated for a long-standing history of foul-smelling belching, halitosis and dyspepsia. He was diagnosed with a 8 cm gastric diverticulum.  The operation was performed via a laparoscopic approach and the diverticulum was resected with an endoscopic stapler. The patient is symptom-free after the operation.
