Abstract

The technique is described, and the experience gained with 7 laparoscopic sigmoid resections is reported. The approach resembles Swenson's technique with only the preparatory part performed laparoscopically. With the most recent procedures, the anaesthesia time of the laparoscopic procedure did not exceed that of the open technique. There were no serious complications or blood losses.
