Objective To evaluate the short-term efficacy for rectal cancer treated by laparoscopic and open radical surgeries. Methods Sixty-eight laparoscopic and sixty-four open operation cases selected from the same surgical group were compared. Results The operation time of laparoscopic surgery was longer than that of open surgery and the cost of laparoscopic group was more than that of open surgery (P<0.05). Meanwhile, blood loss in laparoscopic group was less than in the open group (P<0.01). The proportion of analgesics using in laparoscopic group decreased after surgery compared with the open group (P<0.01). The urinary and gastrointestinal function recovery time and the hospital stay in laparoscopic group were shorter than in the open group after surgery (P<0.05). The postoperative complication rate was 23.53% in laparoscopic group and 34.38% in the open group (P<0.05). Conclusion Laparoscopic surgery brings less trauma, less pain, faster recovery, shorter hospital stay, and fewer postoperative complications than open surgery. Therefore, it is currently a safe and minimally invasive treatment for rectal cancer.
