Over the past decades, advances in minimally invasive surgery have been observed in all surgical fields. Within colon and rectal surgery, the adoption of minimally invasive surgical techniques has allowed for improvements in patient care and recovery. Patients can expect shorter recovery times, decreased hospital length of stays, less postoperative pain medication requirements, and decreased risk of incisional hernia development as a result of these minimally invasive approaches. This chapter ai...

Anastomotic leak is an uncommon but a serious complication of any gastrointestinal operation. This complication can result in significant perioperative morbidity and prolonged recovery. In addition, leaks can delay necessary systemic treatment for cancer patients or require reoperations with additional morbidity. Careful attention to anastomotic technique and evaluation of the anastomoses can reduce the risk of leak. Assessment of factors that affect anastomotic integrity includes evaluation of ...

Background Besides its known antibacterial effect commonly used in intraperitoneal lavage, taurolidine has been observed to possess antineoplastic properties. In order to analyse this antineoplastic potential in a palliative therapeutic setting, taurolidine (TN) was compared to mitomycin C (MMC) and oxaliplatin (OX), known antineoplastic agents which are routinely used in intraperitoneal applications, following pressurized intra-peritoneal aerosol chemotherapy (PIPAC).

Laparoscopic colon resection has shown many beneficial outcomes including reduced pain, earlier recovery and shorter length of stay at hospital. A minilaparotomy after colon resection is necessary for the creation of intestinal anastomosis and specimen extraction. This incision can cause complications including incisional hernia (IH) and wound infection. To retain maximum advantage of minimally invasive surgery, different incisions and specimen retrieval techniques have been practiced. In this r...
