Laparoscopic-assisted truncal vagotomy and gastro-jejunostomy: trial of simplification.

BACKGROUND: Truncal vagotomy and gastro-jejunostomy is an effective procedure for Gastric Outlet Obstruction. The authors' experience with the procedure is presented and an alternative technique for creating the gastro-jejunostomy is described.

METHODS: From January 2005 through June 2007, 18 patients with gastric outlet obstruction secondary to a cicatrizing peptic duodenal ulcer underwent laparoscopic truncal vagotomy and an ante-colic laparoscopic-assisted stapled gastro-jejunostomy.

RESULTS: All procedures were completed laparoscopically with a mean operative time of 81.2 +/- 11.1 minutes. Anastomotic leak was encountered in 1 (5.5%) patient and bile vomiting in 2 patients (11%). The mean follow-up duration was 22.8 +/- 9.8 months. None of the patients developed recurrent obstruction.

CONCLUSIONS: The procedure is feasible, safe, and provides an effective cure for gastric outlet obstruction. The laparoscopic-assisted stapled gastro-jejunostomy reduces the operative time and may reduce the cost of the procedure.
