Colorectal laparoscopy comparable with surgery:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Laparoscopic resection of colorectal cancer compares well with conventional open surgery but more research is needed to determine whether the minimally invasive approach is truly comparable with the open procedure, said Dr Frederick Greene of the Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. In a review of the state of laparoscopic management of colorectal cancer, based on trials to date, Dr Greene said the laparoscopic approach was safe and comparable with open surgery in the short-term, but the open method was preferable for bulky or advanced tumours. The report appears in the July/August issue of CA-A Cancer Journal for Clinicians.
