Tumors in the stomach have traditionally been treated with either subtotal gastrectomy or total gastrectomy, depending on the location. Rather than subjecting patients to a major, usually open, procedure, we explored multiple minimally invasive methods for the resection of benign gastric tumors. In this video, we highlight a wedge resection, a circumferential resection with transverse closure, a transgastric resection, and an endoscopic/laparoscopic submucosal resection.
