Single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) has recently been used for the management of gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST). Here, the feasibility and effectiveness of SILS for GIST and indications for SILS according to tumor location were investigated.

Our Experience Regarding the Association Between Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor and Bariatric Surgery: a Response to a Letter "Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor After Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy: Be Awake Before, During, and After a Bariatric Procedure".
Intraoperative pathologic findings during bariatric surgery are relatively rare. Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are commonly located in the stomach and account for

Laparoscopic and endoscopic surgery has undergone vast progress during the last 2 decades, translating into improved patient outcomes. A prime example of this development is the use of magnetic device...
Laparoscopic surgery changed the management of numerous surgical conditions. It was associated with many advantages over open surgery, such as decreased postoperative pain, faster recovery, shorter ho...
Despite laparoscopic surgical treatment has not been recommended in patients with gastric gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) larger than 5 centimeter, but it continues to evolve rapidl...
Comparison of Endoscopic and Laparoscopic Resection for Small Gastric Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor
6-minute walk test (6MWT) is widely used in cardiopulmonary surgery as a prognostic marker. This prospective cohort study aims to find whether 6MWT will be a good prognostic factor for pat...
Our study aims to evaluate the role of Dickkopf-4 as biomarkers in the treatment of gastrointestinal stromal tumor.
Gastric stromal tumor is a gastrointestinal mesenchymal tumor with malignant differentiation potential, the incidence increased year by year. The surgical resection is the primary treatmen...
Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.
Neoplasms of the endometrial stroma that sometimes involve the MYOMETRIUM. These tumors contain cells that may closely or remotely resemble the normal stromal cells. Endometrial stromal neoplasms are divided into three categories: (1) benign stromal nodules; (2) low-grade stromal sarcoma, or endolymphatic stromal myosis; and (3) malignant endometrial stromal sarcoma (SARCOMA, ENDOMETRIAL STROMAL).
Procedures that avoid use of open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device. With the reduced trauma associated with minimally invasive surgery, long hospital stays may be reduced with increased rates of short stay or day surgery.

All tumors in the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT arising from mesenchymal cells (MESODERM) except those of smooth muscle cells (LEIOMYOMA) or Schwann cells (SCHWANNOMA).
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
