Abstract Surgical resection is indicated for gastrointestinal stromal tumour (GIST). Laparoscopic resection with clear margins is effective in gastric GIST. However, GIST located in the posterior gastric wall with close proximity to the oesophagogastric junction poses special challenges. Laparoscopic intragastric resection offers a new approach to the management of these tumours. The surgical technique, our experience and a summary of the literature are presented.
