Background. Transumbilical single-incision laparoscopic surgery (TUSILS) has emerged as an advanced technique for minimally invasive surgery. Recently, the authors performed TUSIL resection of the ileocecal junction for benign lesions. Methods. The authors report the surgical technique and clinical effect of TUSIL resection of the ileocecal junction in 2 patients. Results. The 2 operations were completely successful with satisfactory and scarless recovery. No postoperative complications occurred. Conclusions. TUSIL resection of the ileocecal junction was feasible and safe in the 2 patients and might lead to an expansion of the indications for TUSILS.
