DiscussionThe “peek port” approach to the patients with a potentially hostile abdomen allows for prompt assessment of intraperitoneal conditions and is associated with an overall low rate of conversion from laparoscopy to laparotomy during colectomy. This technique may reduce expense and morbidity for patient s who ultimately require laparotomy, while allowing some patients with complex disease to be managed laparoscopically who would not normally be considered for a minimally invasive procedure.

ConclusionMIS patients reported improved PRO on selected QOL measures early in the recovery period compared to open. There was no difference in long-term QOL data between MIS and open patients. Two-thirds (61%) of patients reported being fully recovered at 6  months with MIS patients being more likely to report a complete recovery.
