Laparoscopy-assisted jejunal resection for bleeding leiomyoma

  • R. S.  Chung


We report a case of successful resection of a jejunal leiomyoma using a minimally invasive technique. By combining the procedures of push enteroscopy and laparoscopy, jejunal resection can be performed expeditiously without laparotomy.

Key words: Laparoscopic bowel resection — Leiomyoma — Jejunum — Push enteroscopy
