Bernadette U Laxa, MD, Barnard J Palmer, MD, William B Inabnet, MD. Mount Sinai School of Medicine

 

Insulinomas are rare but vascular tumors that require surgical removal as a therapeutic measure.  Laparoscopic enucleation has become the standard treatment when feasible with excellent results.  We present a laparoscopic insulinoma enucleation, during which intraoperative bleeding was encountered.  Bleeding was controlled with the technique of suction irrigation and electrocautery with a good outcome.
