This is the case of a 49-year-old male with history of a recently discovered bleeding gastric mass, 6.6 cm in largest dimension, arising from the fundus of the stomach but extending to the cardia of the stomach. Endoscopic measures were initially attempted, but the endoscopists were not confident that they had completely stopped the bleeding. Due to the abrupt nature of the bleeding and risk for rebleeding, the patient was brought to the operating room for resection. Diagnostic laparoscopy showed a large mass arising from the fundus of the stomach and a robotic massive wedge gastrectomy was performed.
