Abstract

We performed endo-organ full thickness gastric excision to treat a high-risk patient with T2 gastric cancer. The patient, a 75-year-old white man with a gastric adenocarcinoma located just below the gastroesophageal junction, had a history of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and cor pulmonale, and developed markedly elevated pulmonary artery pressures under general anesthesia. The less invasive endo-organ approach was utilized because of these severe morbidities. The carcinoma was staged laparoscopically, then removed utilizing the full-thickness endo- organ excision technique. This case report serves to demonstrate that full thickness endo-organ gastric excision may be indicated not only for certain early gastric cancers, but also for high- risk patients who cannot tolerate open surgery due to advanced age or serious illness.
