Background: Duodenal carcinoids (neuroendocrine tumour) are rare tumour, but recently, increase in incidence has been noted. Various techniques for excision of tumour have been described in literature, but very few case reports and case series have mentioned about laparoscopic management of carcinoid tumour. We describe a case series of seven cases of duodenal non-periampullary carcinoids which was managed by laparoscopic method. Aims: The aim of the study was to check feasibility of laparoscopic management of duodenal carcinoid and technique of surgery. Settings and Design: This study design was a case series and prospective data were retrospectively collected. Materials and Methods: A total of 7 patients were operated for carcinoid tumour of duodenum mainly involving first part by laparoscopic method from February 2016 to January 2017. All patients were followed up for minimum 1-year period and various pre-operative, intra-operative findings and post-operative outcome were noted. Results: Out of seven patients, 6 patient were managed by laparoscopic duodenotomy and transduodenal excision whereas one patient required duodenectomy of first part. Mean operative time was 99 min, mean intraoperative blood loss was 55.7, mean hospital stay was 99.7 and no recurrence in a 1-year follow-up. Conclusions: Laparoscopic excision of carcinoid tumour is safe, technically reproducible and feasible method.
