Presented here is a case of Peutz Jeghers syndrome, a 23 years old female with acute intestinal obstruction due to intussusception. The patient was explored from a midline laparotomy and Enteroscopic Polypectomy was done, which is a hybrid approach for complete clearance of intestinal polyps.
However, laparoscopic instruments were used, instead of the conventionally used fibrescopic equipments, as doing that makes the technique more economic, easily accessible and less operator dependent.
The combination of endoscopic resection of polyps during the surgical procedure avoids major surgical resection and multiple enterotomies, thereby, preventing short bowel syndrome and future laparotomies.
The innovative modification of using laparoscopic instruments during intraoperative enteroscopy should be considered due to their availability even at smaller centres in this emerging laparoscopy era.
