I also had a tracheotomy to breathe and a gastrotomy
to feed me artificially while waiting for a more functional mouth.
The endoscopic fragmentation and removal of the gastric phytobezoar in pieces saved our patient from a second operation and a gastrotomy
that could have increased morbidity.
was performed and a large brownish trichobezoar in the shape of the stomach was found and extracted as a whole (Figs.
All patients were managed by laparotomy, gastrotomy
and open removal of the bezoar (Figs 4 and 5).
After dissection of the greater curvature by using 4/0 silk sutures (Sterisilk[R]; SSM, Istanbul, Turkey), gastrotomy
was performed 5 mm proximal to the pylori, and the gastric contents were aspirated.
Adipose-derived stem cells enhance tissue regeneration of gastrotomy
Vigorous attempts to crush the bezoars were unsuccessful; therefore, gastrotomy
was performed to retrieve the bezoars.
(2-6) Most of the techniques describing the use of circular staplers for Billroth I anastomosis required an additional gastrotomy
for introducing the instrument or passage of the instrument through the part of the stomach to be resected.
 described a laparoscopic purse-string technique with immediate intraoperative gastrotomy
closure with sutures or staples in ten patients with no surgical complications.
The enteral nutrition concept through percutaneous endoscopic gastrotomy
(PEG) feeding is a guideline-recommended intervention [30, 37].

and retrieval of metallic objects.
After manipulation of the tissues, a gastrotomy
was made laterally and spanned most of the length of the stomach and into the duodenum approximately 2 cm.
