Abstract

Laparoscopic resection has been considered a contraindication for T4 colorectal cancer. It is argued that it is a challenging and demanding procedure with high conversion rate, inadequate oncologic clearance and surgical outcomes. There are only a few data on short- and long-term operative results. This review aimed at assessing feasibility and operative and oncologic results of laparoscopic resection for T4 colorectal cancer.
