The authors have previously shown in pigs an immediate transgastric technique for stapling the stomach and jejunum to allow a functioning gastroenteric anastomosis (GEA) with use of balloons and stent placement. The aim of this approach in six pigs was to replicate this procedure by using a flexible endoscopic technique. All pigs had GEAs that were well attached and fully patent.
