A laparoscopic distal gastrectomy with gastroduodenostomy (Billroth I) was performed on a patient with intractable gastric ulcer. The patient was a 56-year-old man, complaining of severe epigastralgia, who had a 10-year history of peptic ulcer. Gastroscopy had revealed a UL-IV gastric ulcer on the lesser curvature at the angle of the stomach and a deformity of the bulbus. A diagnosis of intractable gastric ulcer was made, and the patient underwent laparoscopic distal gastrectomy and gastroduodenostomy. On postoperative day 1, he was able to walk. On postoperative day 4, he started on a clear liquid diet and was discharged on postoperative day 14.
