In recent years, laparoscopic surgery for gastric cancer has progressed as a specialized surgical technique due to standardization of the technique, and outcomes are being clarified. Laparoscopic surgery has been used aggressively to treat gastric submucosal tumor as well. Reports of laparoscopic and endoscopic cooperative surgery (LECS) have been published of cases in which subtotal resection was difficult. The use of both laparoscopy and endoscopy enabled resection of these tumors. We have used combined laparoscopic and endoscopic surgery for stomach tumors at our hospital, but to perform LECS, we surgeons first met with internal medicine physicians, anesthesiologists, and surgical nurses, developed a manual, and have continued to update it. We report on the surgical indications, devices, patient’s positioning, port locations, techniques, and results of 13 cases of LECS we have performed at our hospital to date.
