CONCLUSIONS: Based on this nationwide database study, and after multivariate and propensity score-matched analyses, there was no increased risk of positive circumferential resection margin after laparoscopic vs open rectal resection.

ConclusionsVery low energy diets result in a clinically significant reduction in mesorectal fat with a lesser change in total pelvic fat, suggesting that very low energy diets may be useful for preparation for pelvic surgery in the obese. The distance from S1 to the posterior rectum correlates well with mesorectal reduction, making this a valuable clinical tool when volumetric analysis is not possible.  This analysis is limited to the quantification of the effect of the diet and cannot comment on the safety of this approach before pelvic cancer surgery.

ConclusionsIn summary, 3D laparoscopic rectal surgery appears to have advantages over 2D laparoscopic rectal surgery in terms of positive CRM and operation time; however, it is not better than 2D laparoscopic rectal surgery in terms of the conversion rate and postoperative complications.

ConclusionsAll surgical techniques for rectal cancer dissection have a role and may be considered appropriate. Some techniques have advantages over others in certain clinical situations, and the best outcomes may be achieved by considering all options before applying an individualised approach to each clinical situation.

CONCLUSIONS: The data analysed shows a reduction of pulmonary and renal cardiac adverse events after laparoscopic oncological surgery, it has not come to a conclusion for rectal cancer. There is also an increase in adverse events related to the duration of the operating session, the male sex and the age ≥ 70 years, thus enhancing the hypothesis that elderly patients are actually the population who can ultimately benefit more of minimally invasive surgical techniques.

In addition, it affects the choice of adjuvant therapy, as well as prognosis. The American Joint Committee on Cancer defines at least 12 LNs harvested as adequate in colorectal cancer resections. Despite the importance of the topic, even in high-volume colorectal c...
