The combination of laparoscopy and intraoperative endoscopy may prove beneficial in locating and resecting challenging lesions. We present two cases where such benefit was realized. The first case involved a pre-pyloric GIST tumor in a patient who refused antrectomy. The utility of endoscopic assistance during laparoscopic resection was demonstrated. The second case involved a small bowel mass seen on capsule endoscopy that proved difficult to localize laparoscopically as well as in open fashion. After laparoscopic evaluation of the small bowel and a resection of a segment that did not contain the lesion, intraoperative endoscopy was utilized for localization. The lesion was successfully localized and marked under direct endoscopic visualization allowing for resection. This video highlights the utility of combined laparoscopic and endoscopic modalities when single modality resection was not possible in a minimally invasive fashion.
