 en Case Report - Wedge resection for duodenal stromal tumor
Cogliandolo, Andrea; Venneri, Antonella; Gioffre Florio, MariaAntonietta; Caruso, Rosario & Pidoto, RoccoRoberto


A discrete bleeding tumor of the external aspect of the descending duodenum revealed to be a gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) in a 60-year-old man. Authors discuss the adequacy of the free-margin local resection they opted for thanks to the favorable tumor localization. They conclude that, in spite of the increasing knowledge about GISTs, it still remains an open issue whether performing possible limited resections, looking at the patient′s quality of life or extensive resections, looking at a potentially curative approach.
