MOROS VERA, Manuel Eduardo et al. Determination of the technical feasibility and safety of transgastric peritoneal approach in a pig model. Rev Col Gastroenterol [online]. 2008, vol.23, n.4, pp. 328-332. ISSN 0120-9957.
Background. The feasibility of peroral transgastric peritoneoscopy and liver biopsy has been demonstrated in prior animal studies. Objective. Our purpose was to determine the feasibility and safety of transgastric peritoneal approach in local experience. Designs. Animal experimental feasibility study. Results. The peritoneal transgastric approach with PEG- like model was used in 3 pigs suis scrofa domesticus specie. The average procedure was 102 minutes, it did no have complications related to the access, and the necropsy did not reveal any damage to organs adjacent to the stomach. Nevertheless the gastric wall close was not successful in 2 pigs. Conclusions. This study report the local experience with peroral transgastric approach to peritoneal cavity, its technically feasible, a PEG- like transgastric model is simple and safe, the close of gastric wall requires skill and best technology.
