    Background: Robotic colorectal surgery is gaining interest in general and colorectal surgery. The use of the da Vinci Robotic system has been postulated to improve outcomes, primarily by increasing the dexterity and facility with which complex dissections can be performed. We report a large,...

    Purpose: To compare the outcomes of colonic splenic flexure tumours treated by extended right colectomy versus left colectomy. Methods: Stage I-III splenic flexure tumours, treated either by extended right colectomy or left colectomy between 1996 and 2011, were identified in a prospective...

    Background: The benefit of single-incision laparoscopy (SIL) over conventional multiport laparoscopy (ML) is not demonstrated in colorectal surgery, mainly because of potentially biased reports. The objective of this study was to compare SIL to ML for colorectal resection, using a...

    Background: Single-site laparoscopic colectomy (SLC) is an emerging concept that, compared with conventional multiport laparoscopic colectomy (MLC), yields reduced postoperative pain and improved cosmesis. Complete mesocolic excision (CME) is a novel concept for colon cancer surgery that...

    Purpose: The instrument crowding derived from commercially available access devices in single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) is a challenge to overcome. This study was designed to evaluate the short-term surgical outcomes of SILS by applying a self-made device in patients with benign colon...

  • Converted laparoscopic colectomy. Belizon, A.; Sardinha, C. T.; Sher, M. E. // Surgical Endoscopy;Jun2006, Vol. 20 Issue 6, p947 

    Background: The safety and benefits of laparoscopic colon resection are well documented. However, few reports have addressed the safety and comparative outcome of laparoscopic colon operations that necessitated conversion. Methods: All consecutive laparoscopic colon resections performed by a...

    In contrast to sigmoid diverticular disease, right colonic diverticulitis is a rare disease in Western countries. The clinical presentation is often similar to acute appendicitis. The aim of this study was to analyze surgical challenge in right-sided diverticulitis. All patients who underwent...

    Background: Previous studies have relied on conversion rate and operative time for construction of learning curves in laparoscopic colorectal surgery. The authors hypothesized that conversion rate and operative time were less important than complication and readmission rates in...

    Background and aims: Right-sided diverticulitis is rare in Western societies but is not uncommon in Asian countries. Many of the patients are operated with the presumptive diagnosis of appendicitis. This study compared the results of emergency surgery for patients with right-sided and left-sided...
