Laparoscopy-assisted Billroth I gastrectomy

Surg Laparosc Endosc. 1994 Apr;4(2):146-8.


Laparoscopic distal partial gastrectomy is still technically difficult under conditions of a pneumoperitoneum because of the lack of appropriate techniques and laparoscopic instruments. We describe here a technique of laparoscopy-assisted Billroth I gastrectomy under an abdominal wall-elevating method.
