The purpose

Current evidence regarding the optimal surgical approach to potentially curable right colonic cancer is based on numerous, well designed randomised controlled clinical trials. Currently, eminence based opinion suggests that an alternative surgical technique, single incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS), may improve short and long term outcomes after minimally invasive right colonic resection. A true, prospective analysis comparing standard of care (laparoscopic right hemicolectomy) and this "new" therapy(SILS) has yet to be published. Having established the optimum treatment modality the minimally invasive approach to right colonic tumors the results will be communicated at national and international meetings.

Provided treatments

  • Procedure: Patients will be divided in two groups- those having right colectomy by standard laparoscopy and those having Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS)
