Abstract

Since the first minimally invasive colon resection 15 years ago, laparoscopic colectomy has been implemented as techniques have evolved. Like the laparoscopic approach for other operations, minimally invasive colectomy has potential benefits of improved short-term outcomes. Questions have been raised, however, regarding its use for colorectal cancer resection. Until recently, it was unclear whether minimally invasive surgery for colonic malignancies would achieve adequate oncologic resection. This review provides an overview of laparoscopic colectomy and techniques and examines recent data from randomized, controlled trials that report the short- and long-term outcomes after laparoscopic colectomy for cancer.
