Abstract

Laparoscopic segmental colectomy has been widely accepted as a surgical procedure for benign colonic disease. With improving technology and surgeon experience, more complex procedures have been performed. However, a minimal invasive approach may not be justified for all colonic diseases. The use of laparoscopic surgery for colonic cancer, for example, has been controversial and the results of our national and international trials are yet unknown. We anticipate, given the positive findings of multiple small randomized and nonrandomized trials, that laparoscopic colectomy for cancer may soon prove to be appropriate in this setting. Our aim in this paper is to explore the indications, contraindications, and techniques regarding laparoscopic surgery that we have used in the treatment of colon cancer for patients enrolled in the national trial.
