GOMEZ, Martín; ORTIZ, Camilo  and  MUNOZ, Giovanni. Endoscopia cooperativa con laparoscopia: una nueva alternativa para el manejo del cáncer gástrico tempranoCooperative Endoscopic Laparoscopy: a new alternative for management of early gastric cancer. Rev Col Gastroenterol [online]. 2014, vol.29, n.3, pp.232-236. ISSN 0120-9957.

Usually early gastric cancer is treated by submucosal resection, but for a case in which the lesion is very large, is located in a very difficult place for resection, or has a very aggressive histological pattern, a gastrectomy is indicated. This procedure is too mutilating and results in poor patient quality of life. For these cases cooperative endoscopic laparoscopy may be a new alternative for management of the condition. This series of cases presents our hospital’s experience with this technique and shows the variables faced with the procedure so that it can be applied elsewhere in our country

Keywords : Early gastric cancer; laparoscopy; endoscopy; submucosal dissection.
