PMID:  8721169     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Since 1990, we have performed extramucosal pyloromyotomies by laparoscopy in 70 infants presenting with congenital hypertrophic pyloric stenosis. Ever since the first cases, the technique and the instruments have been adapted. The surgical technique and the precautionary measures are here explained again. This technique is beneficial for infants with a better postoperative course and avoidance of any skin scar.
