When percutaneous methods for feeding tube placement are not available, laparoscocpic feeding tube placement is considered a minimal risk surgery with less morbidity as compared to open feeding tube. Similar to open, laparoscopic methods use either a Stamm or Witzel technique. They both are make of minimize gastric content spillage intraabdominally and to minimize skin spillage. However, when the stomach cannot be mobilized, sgnificant adhesions exist or the stomach is too small to afford imbrication, then limited chices exist. We use a novel technique that uses the principle of biological patch using omentum which minicims the benefits of both Stamm and Witzel witout having to mobilize the stomach or need to place pexing suture. Presented is a video to demonstate this simple but highly effective techniqe as a case study.
