    Abstract

    Introduction Laparoscopic duodenal atresia repair is an advanced procedure performed in select pediatric surgical centers. Recently, sub–6 mm endosurgical staplers have been introduced, facilitating and accelerating the creation of intracorporeal intestinal anastomoses. Presentation of case We performed a laparoscopic duodenojejunostomy in a one-day-old child with duodenal atresia due to annular pancreas using a novel 5.8 mm articulating endostapler with excellent outcome. The technical details are reported. Discussion Laparoscopic duodenojejunostomy is a technically demanding procedure due to difficulty in hand-sewn anastomosis in a small and restricted space. With this novel 5.8 mm articulating endostapler, we were able to perform a quicker and easier anastomosis. Conclusion We report a case of laparoscopic duodenal atresia repair in a neonate using a novel miniature stapling device. This new technique is a safe, quick and easier way to perform laparoscopic duodenal atresia repair.
