Souya Nunobe et al. Safety and feasibility of laparoscopic and endoscopic cooperative surgery for duodenal neoplasm: a retrospective multicenter study

This retrospective study demonstrates the effectiveness and safety of laparoscopic and endoscopic cooperative surgery (LECS) for duodenal neoplasms. Although more invasive than endoscopic resection, duodenal LECS may be a good option for R0 resection with limited risk. Nevertheless, LCES should be compared with endoscopic resection, as duodenal epithelial lesions are mostly benign or, if malignant, are usually superficial.
