Early postoperative complications of transvaginal access in minimally invasive sigmoid colon procedures.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

The aim of the study was to evaluate early (the first 30 days) postoperative complications after transvaginal resection of the sigmoid colon.

MATERIAL AND METHODS:

A total of 23 laparoscopy-assisted transvaginal resections of the sigmoid colon and 1 NOTES transvaginal sigmoid resection were performed in the course of 3 years. Postoperative complications were recorded in a prospective manner.

RESULTS:

In the group of 24 patients operated on using the transvaginal approach, 6 (25%) complications were recorded, including 3 urinary tract infections, 2 vaginal bleedings, and 1 abdominal trocar site hernia.

CONCLUSION:

Early postoperative complication rate after transvaginal resection of the sigmoid colon is relatively low and the clinical complications are not severe.
