Stricture formations resulting in impedance of gastric emptying is a fairly common complications after gastric surgeries with endoscopy being the most direct way of diagnosis. When this and other methods fail in detecting the complication the proper diagnosis can become challenging. We present an unusual case of an acquired gastric stricture after GIST tumor resection. Simulataneous application of diagnostic laparoscopic and intra- operative esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) was used to rapair the stricture by stapled strictureplasy. We perform a comprehensive literature review( Pubmed-Cochrane 1990-current) of the diagnostic and surgical treatments of post resection gastric strictures.
