Abstract: BACKGROUND Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) originate from interstitial cells of Cajal. GISTs can occur anywhere along the gastrointestinal tract. Large lesions have traditionally been removed surgically. However, with recent innovations in advanced endoscopy, GISTs located within the stomach are now removed endoscopically. We describe a new innovative endoscopic technique to close large and hard to access defects after endoscopic full-thickness resection of gastric GISTs. CASE SUMMARY We present a series of three patients who were diagnosed with a gastric GIST. All patients underwent full-thickness endoscopic resection. In all cases, for closure of the surgical bed, conventional endoscopic techniques including hemoclips, endoloop and suturing were unsuccessful. We performed a new technique in which we pulled omental fat into the gastric lumen and completely closed the defect using endoscopic devices. All patients performed well post-procedure and computed tomography was carried out one day after the procedures which showed no extravasation of contrast. CONCLUSION The omental plug technique may be used as an alternative to surgery in selected cases of gastric perforation.
