Laparoscopic Right Hemicolectomy with Isoperistaltic Intracorporeal Anastomosis

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.
