Abstract

Purpose

A review article to evaluate and compare the short-and long-term results of laparoscopic-assisted colectomy (LAC) and open colectomy (OC) for colon cancer.

Materials and methods

Relevant papers were searched using MEDLINE, Science Citation Index and Cochrane Controlled Trial Register, by using the search terms ‘laparoscopy’, ‘surgery’, ‘colectomy’ and ‘colon cancer’.

Conclusion

LAC has the benefits of reducing intraoperative blood loss, earlier resumption of oral intake and shorter duration of hospital stay.
