Gastrointestinal stromal tumors of the stomach are submucosal masses often found incidentally during endoscopy or on cross sectional imaging. Resection is typically recommended due to the malignant potential, and is most commonly accomplished by wedge gastrectomy. This video describes a case of a 2.8 centimeter gastrointestinal tumor abutting the gastroesophageal junction where wedge gastrectomy was not possible. A curative resection was accomplished via a laparoscopic transgastric approach, which avoided a gastrectomy. This technique is a safe and effective technique to remove proximal tumors of the stomach.
