Enteric duplications are rare congenital anomalies with gastric duplication cysts accounting for less than 5% of cases. This is our experience with laparoscopic excision of a gastric duplication cyst located within the gastrohepatic ligament during sleeve gastrectomy. Using intraoperative fluorescence imaging, we were able to verify perfusion to the proximal stomach and liver after cyst excision prior to completion sleeve gastrectomy.
