Feasibility of Reduced Port Laparoscopic Colectomy for Colon Cancer.

Abstract

BACKGROUND/AIMS:

Reduced port laparoscopic surgery has recently emerged as a method to improve the cosmetic results of conventional laparoscopic surgery. We reported our technique of reduced port laparoscopic colectomy using 3-port and short-time outcomes.

METHODOLOGY:

Between 2005 and 2012, we performed 161 reduced port laparoscopic colectomies using the 3-port technique. Data analyzed in-cluded age, gender, body mass index (BMI), duration of surgery, number of harvested lymph nodes, and duration of hospital stay.

RESULTS:

All of the cases were successfully performed using the 3-port procedure. The median durations of surgery and postoperative hospital stay were 140 mm (range 75-463 mm) and 9 days (range 5-38 days), respectively. No mortality was associated with this technique.

CONCLUSION:

Reduced port laparoscopic colectomy is feasible and may have advantages over conventional laparoscopic colectomy.
