Introduction: Malignant or pre-malignant periampullary lesions require resection. Options include endoscopic and surgical approaches, however minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is preferred when endoscopic removal is not feasible.
Methods: We report the result of a 59 year-old morbidly obese female with an incidental periampullary mass not amenable to endoscopic resection.
Results: Complete MIS excision of the lesion was performed without perioperative complications. An enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocol was used. The patient was discharged on post-operative day 3.
Conclusion: Minimally invasive surgery allows for early recovery and
discharge when complemented with ERAS principles.
