The diagnosis and treatment of gastric pathology were dramatically changed with the introduction of endoscopy. Routine screening upper endoscopy permits the identification of small tumors and early cancers confined to the mucosa. Combined laparoscopic and endoscopic excision of these lesions have proven successful. It achieves exact localization and adequate excision of limited lesions of the gastric mucosa and submucosa.
