The early gastric carcinomas measuring 10-25 mm in diameter, macroscopically I-II/C types and benign gastric tumours are relegated to laparoscopic wedge resection of the stomach. Authors report on the use of a new endoscopic assisted--"double-lifting"--laparoscopic resection of the gastric wall, in the course of removal of an early stage gastric carcinoma (13 mm in diameter, macroscopically II/C type) and a gastric lipoma (21 mm in diameter). The advantage of this method: the affected gastric wall could be removed safely far from the lesion and all layers of the gastric wall are available for histological examination.
