Abstract

Laparoscopic techniques have expanded since their introduction 15 years ago. The laparoscopic approach for colorectal surgery has been slower to develop than other fields of surgery. However, this approach does provide significant benefits for colorectal resection, although concerns regarding the ability to satisfy oncological criteria have restricted its use in the past. This review studies the published data on the use of laparoscopic surgery for colorectal cancer including the short- and long-term outcomes. New long-term outcome data is now available which is likely to encourage the use of this technique for colon cancer resection. Laparoscopic rectal cancer resection is also discussed including the more limited outcome data that is available.
