Laparoscopic Total Mesorectum Excision

By J.A. Reis Neto, F.A. Quilici, F. Cordeiro, J.A. Reis, O. Kagohara and J. Simões Neto


The main controversy of colon-rectal laparoscopic surgery comes from its use as a cancer treatment. Two points deserve special attention: the incidence of portsite tumor implantation and the possibility of performing radical cancer surgery, such as total mesorectum excision
