The appropriateness of laparoscopic surgery for the resection of colorectal cancer has been the focus of controversy. The pros insist that besides the smaller wound size, laparoscopic colectomy should induce lesser perioperative stress, which was evidenced by the less pain, quicker flatus passage, early feeding, and more rapid to resume daily activity and work. Moreover, since the laparoscopic colectomy induces lesser immunosuppression, this may be potentially positive for the treatment of colorectal cancer patients. However, the cons insist that first of all, when the summation of 4 or 5 ports, and incisional wound to retrieve specimen in laparoscopic colectomy were considered, the total wound size in laparoscopic colectomy is basically similar to that of the open colectomy. Secondly, since the laparoscopic surgeons advocated that the extent of intra-abdominal dissection was the same between laparoscopic and open colectomy, it seems illogical to speculate that laparoscopic procedure is less ...
The aim of this study is to compare patients < 70 years old (group I) to Group II > 70 years old who underwent laparoscopic colon resection surgery.

AU - Branum, M. A.. AU - Meyers, W. C.. PY - 1990. Y1 - 1990. N2 - Familial polyposis is an inherited syndrome in which untreated persons have virtually a 100% incidence of developing colon cancer. Much controversy exists over whether subtotal colectomy with ileoproctostomy is the appropriate procedure in these patients owing to the risk of subsequent cancer in the retained portion of the rectum. At Duke University Medical Center, Durham, NC, a group of 25 patients chose to undergo the subtotal colectomy and ileoproctostomy instead of the definitive total proctocolectomy. Of the 25 patients in this series, invasive adenocarcinoma has developed in the rectal segment in only 1 patient. This patient, the oldest in our series, had carcinoma in situ in her initial operative specimen and has done well folowing an ...
Less invasive surgery for colon cancer with laparoscopic colectomy improves outcomes. These findings were reported in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.. Historically, surgical treatment for colon cancer involved a procedure called open colectomy to remove section of the colon containing cancer. This involved large incisions and opening of the abdomen in order to remove the cancer. More recently, a less invasive approach known as laparoscopic colectomy has been associated with decreasing the side effects caused by open colectomy. In a laparoscopic colectomy, a few incisions-approximately one-centimeter long-are made in the patients abdomen. A very small tube that holds a video camera can then be inserted through the incisions, creating a live picture of the inside of the patients body. This picture is continually displayed on a television screen so that physicians can perform the entire surgery by watching the screen. Before the section of the colon containing the cancer is removed ...
Authors: David Schwartzberg, Noah Cohen, Jordan Schwartzberg, Paresh C. Shah Oncologic outcomes of laparoscopic and open colectomy have been demonstrated to be equivalent, with similar three-year disease-free survival and overall survival rates for any stage. Compared to patients who undergo open colectomy, patients who undergo laparoscopic colectomy benefit from a shorter median length of hospital stay and decreased post-operative use of pain medication. Intraoperative and post-operative complications are similar between open and laparoscopic colectomy. A Comparison of Laparoscopically Assisted and Open Colectomy for Colon Cancer.

Hugo Bonatti, Kiran Khosha. Meritus Health, Hagerstown MD. Introduction: Cecal (CV) and sigmoid volvulus (SV) are acute surgical disorders frequently requiring emergent surgery. Colonoscopic decompression may temporize the condition; however; CV and SV may recur requiring colectomy. Only few cases of combined CV and SV have been reported and open surgery has remained the more common approach.. Case Report: A 40-year-old African-American female with cerebral palsy came to the ER with acute abdominal distention and pain. CT-scan revealed acute CV. Multiple episodes of SV had been treated nonoperatively in the past. The proximal bowel was decompressed through her PEG tube and the large bowel by colonoscopy. Laparoscopic (partial) colectomy with ostomy was planned. The patient was placed supine, trocars were placed in the left upper (U) and left lower quadrant (LQ) and into an old upper midline incision from a fundoplication. Transverse colon adhesions at the PEG tube site were lysed, the right (R) ...
Colectomy (col- + -ectomy) is bowel resection of the large bowel (colon). It consists of the surgical removal of any extent of the colon, usually segmental resection (partial colectomy). In extreme cases where the entire large intestine is removed, it is called total colectomy, and proctocolectomy (procto- + colectomy) denotes that the rectum is included. Some of the most common indications for colectomy are: Colon cancer Diverticulitis and diverticular disease of the large intestine Trauma Inflammatory bowel disease such as ulcerative colitis or Crohns disease. Colectomy neither cures nor eliminates Crohns disease, instead only removing part of the entire diseased large intestine. A colectomy is considered a cure for ulcerative colitis because the disease attacks only the large intestine and therefore will not be able to flare up again if the entire large intestine (cecum, ascending colon, transverse colon, descending colon and sigmoid colon) and rectum are removed. However, it does not ...

Congenital long segment megacolon is still a serious therapeutic problem. It is generally accepted that conservative treatment without surgical intervention will not give satisfactory results. The purpose of this case report is to show how subtotal colectomy and anastomosis cecorectalis is the operation of choice. At the Childrens Hospital in Zagreb we have had only two cases on which we performed cecorectal anastomosis. The patients general condition and enormous dilatation of the ganglionic region indicated surgery and only anus praeter bipollaris was performed on the colon ascendens. The second operation took place one year after the first operation. At the second operation we performed subtotal colectomy with cecorectal anastomosis. The postoperative clinical course was without complications. The wound cured regularly. Digitorectal examination revealed no anomalies in the anastomosis. The children had 1-2 stools daily. After six months we performed a check up examination with irigography, ...

While there are no differences in oncologic principles (no touch technique, proximal vessel ligation, lymphadenectomy) between laparoscopic right colectomy with IIA and EIA, potential advantages of IIA are: (1) no need for extensive mobilization of the transverse colon to reach the abdominal wall; (2) performing the anastomosis away from the abdominal wall may lead to reduced rates of superficial site infection; (3) a shorter incision for the specimen extraction may be associated with clinical benefits such as less pain and lower rates of superficial site infections; (4) laparoscopic visualization during the creation of the IIA may reduce unrecognized twisting of the terminal ileum mesentery, and (5) the ability to remove the specimen through any type of incision, with subsequent reduced risks of incisional hernias in case of Pfannenstiel incision when compared to midline or off-midline incisions.. Some retrospective and heterogeneous studies comparing perioperative outcomes after laparoscopic ...

Laparoscopic colon surgery is a technique performed for colon cancer treatment. Laparoscopic colon resection surgery allows a high success rate (over 95%) for even the most complicated patients.
Both these surgeries are performed to remove bowel disease affecting different parts of the large bowel. The choice of surgery is dependent on where the growth or disease extends to.. The abdomino-perineal resection involves removing a section of large bowel (the sigmoid colon) along with the rectum and the anus (the back passage).. The total colectomy with proctectomy involves removing the entire large bowel along with the rectum and anus (the back passage). When the back passage is removed, the area is then stitched up and permanently closed. A new permanent opening for the bowel is called a stoma and is made in the wall of the abdomen (tummy). Bo dy waste then collects in a disposable adhesive bag which covers the new stoma.. If you are undergoing the abdomino-perineal resection, the stoma is called a colostomy because it is formed in the remaining section of the large bowel (colon). If you are undergoing a total colectomy with proctectomy, the stoma is called an Ileostomy because it is ...

BACKGROUND: To determine the long-term outcome of patients admitted with acute severe colitis (ASC) who avoided colectomy on the index admission, a retrospective cohort study was performed. METHODS: Patients admitted for intensive treatment of ASC in 1992-1993 previously described for a predictive index of short-term outcome in severe ulcerative colitis (UC) were followed for a median 122 months (range 3-144). Complete responders (CR) to intensive therapy had |3 nonbloody stools/day on day 7 of the index admission; incomplete responders (IR) were all others who avoided colectomy on that admission. Main outcome measures were colectomy-free survival, time to colectomy, and duration of steroid-free remission. RESULTS: In all, 6/19 CR (32%) came to colectomy compared to 10/13 IR (P = 0.016; relative risk 3.33, 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.12-9.9). The median +/- interquartile range time to colectomy was 28 +/- 47 months (range 6-99) for CR who came to colectomy versus 7.5 +/- 32 (3-72) months for IR (P =

AU - MacSata, Robyn A.. PY - 2012/1/1. Y1 - 2012/1/1. N2 - The relationship of hyperglycemia to general surgery outcomes is not well-understood. We studied the association of operative day and postoperative day 1 (POD1) blood glucose (BG) with outcomes after open colectomy for cancer. We retrospectively analyzed the 2000-2005 Veterans Affairs Surgical Quality Improvement Program database, linked with Veterans Affairs Decision Support System BG values. Median BG was categorized as hypoglycemic (,80 mg/dL); normoglycemic (BG 80-120 mg/dL); or mildly (BG 121-160 mg/dL), moderately (BG 161-200 mg/dL), or severely (BG ,200 mg/dL) hyperglycemic. The relationship of BG to postoperative outcomes was assessed with multivariable logistic regression. We identified 9,638 colectomies. We excluded 511 procedures for ...

Metastatic disease is the main cause of death in patients with colorectal cancer and the most frequent location of metastases is in the liver. The treatment of liver metastases of colorectal origin is multimodal and should be based on a multidisciplinary team decision. A systematic review of the literature revealed that the number of liver metastases, their maximum size, CEA level, advanced age of the patients, and presence of extrahepatic disease are no longer contraindications to liver resection. The resectability rate of colorectal liver metastases increased from 10 to almost 40%, enabling 5-year overall survival rates higher than 30%. Short-term and long-term results achieved by simultaneous resection (SR) are similar to those achieved by staged resections in patients with synchronous colorectal liver metastases. Whenever possible, major hepatectomies should be replaced by ultrasound-guided limited liver resections, and primary tumor should be approached in a minimally invasive manner. Even
Twenty-one consecutive patients undergoing colectomy for Crohns disease of total colon were studied, with particular emphasis on hepatic abnormality at colectomy and at 3- to 7-year follow-up. After colectomy there was a high incidence of recurrent Crohns disease involving small bowel, regardless of initial small-bowel involvement. There were abnormalities of liver histology in 90% of the 20 operative biopsies, with 75% showing more than minor change. Cirrhosis, amyloidosis, and multiple hepatic granulomata were also noted. Elevated serum alkaline phosphatase was of value in detecting significant hepatic abnormality. Other tests were not as useful, being either too insensitive (such as serum bilirubin and serum transaminases) or too nonspecific (serum protein abnormalities and sulfobromophthalein retention). Blood transfusions, potentially hepatotoxic drugs, and previous hepatitis appeared unrelated to observed hepatic abnormalities. The frequency and type of hepatic abnormality encountered in ...

Colonic resection leads to insulin resistance, but the mechanisms are unknown. We used an integrated approach to examine adipose tissue and skeletal muscle metabolism in patients lacking a colon. Ten healthy colectomized patients having undergone surgery for ulcerative colitis and 10 matched control subjects were studied with a hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic clamp to measure insulin sensitivity, an arteriovenous sampling meal tolerance study to measure postprandial substrate flux across adipose tissue and skeletal muscle, and adipose tissue and skeletal muscle biopsies to quantify the expression of genes involved in glucose and lipid metabolism. Colectomized subjects exhibited lower insulin sensitivity (homeostatic model assessment model, 33% reduction, P = 0.03; minimal model, 29% reduction, P = 0.05), elevated aldosterone (9-fold, P = 0.003), leptin (2.2-fold, P = 0.03), and an increased rate of nonesterified fatty acid and glycerol release from adipose tissue (P = 0.02) especially in the late

The mean postoperative morphine equivalent use was 160.2 mg. The team determined that narcotic analgesic use was significantly less in women, in patients with a diagnosis of cancer, or who underwent laparoscopic colectomy.. Furthermore, patients undergoing a right colectomy required less postoperative narcotics than patients having other types of colectomies. In addition, the team identified a positive correlation between postoperative narcotic use and operative time, and a negative correlation with patient age.. Linear regression analysis determined that age, female gender, and laparoscopy were independent predictors for decreased narcotic use.. Dr Charles Joelss team concluded, "Postoperative IV narcotic analgesic use is affected by gender, patient age, indication for colectomy, operative time, type of procedure, and operative technique". ...
