ConclusionsA robotic approach might be considered in cases of large D-GISTs amenable to a conservative R0 surgery. This system provides several technical advantages that facilitate otherwise complex resection and reconstruction.10

Sala Abdalla, Tayo OkeJournal of Minimal Access Surgery 2019 15(4):339-341A Meckel's diverticulum (MD) is a congenital abnormality of the gastrointestinal tract which is estimated to be present in 2% of the population. Gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GISTs) are rare, soft-tissue tumours which represent 0.1%–3% of all gastrointestinal tumours. The association of an MD and a GIST is extremely unusual since fewer than 3% of MD harbour primary neoplasms and most of these neoplasms are carcinoid tumours. While MDs may remain asymptomatic throughout life, a small proportion may be complicated by occul...

Rationale: Adenocarcinoma coexists with adjacent microscopic gastrointestinal stromal tumor (micro-GIST) is rare, especially in the rectum, where the gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) have the lower incidence rate. It is easy to ignore the concurrent micro-GIST due to the untypical symptoms. Patient concerns: A 77-year-old male patient suffered from lower abdominal pain for 20 days and presented with per rectal bleeding for 10 days. He had the medical history of hypertension and diabetes for more than 25 years. Diagnoses: Endoscopy revealed that the patient had rectum adenocarcinoma and multiple rectum polyps...

Plexiform fibromyxoma (PF) is a rare gastric tumor often confused with gastrointestinal stromal tumor. These so-called “benign” tumors often present with upper GI bleeding and gastric outlet obstruction. It wa...

A 69 year-old male was admitted due to severe upper gastrointestinal bleeding requiring packed erythrocytes transfusions. The emergency upper endoscopy showed in the 2nd duodenum an active spurting bleeding from the surface of a bulge with smooth appearance, likely to refer to an intraluminal subepithelial lesion (Fig. 1A), suspected for gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST). The lesion had a normal overlying mucosa with a bleeding point, clearly visible after continuous washing (Fig. 1B, arrow), compatible with a Dieulafoy ’s lesion.

Ectopic ovaries are a rare occurrence. A 33-year-old woman presented to our unit for evaluation of a 2-year history of sporadic abdominal pain that was becoming sharp and frequent. Computed tomography suggested a gastrointestinal tract mesenchymoma. An abdominal laparotomy was performed and the tumor was excised for pathologic evaluation. A rapid frozen section pathologic examination showed a solitary fibrous tumor. The final pathology report was an ectopic ovary with corpora lutea bleeding. Ectopic ovaries are benign and the present case is the first report involving an ectopic ovary mimicking a gastrointestinal stromal t...

In this study, the utility and associated complications of mucosal cutting biopsy (MCB) for gastric SMTs were investigated. Methods: This was a case series study. The subjects were patients aged ≥20 years old in whom an SMT was seen on esophagogastroduodenography and who underwent MCB between January 2012 and December 2016. Patient information, endoscopy findings, gastric SMT size, pathological diagnosis, and other information were gathered from medical records. The SMT size was the maximum diameter that could be visualized on EUS. The pathological diagnosis was made with hematoxylin-eosin staining, with immunostain...
