Abstract: -Background -Surgical resection is the mainstay of treatment for colorectal cancer with curative intent. Aim -To evaluate the postoperative results of laparoscopic and laparotomic colorectal resections for colorectal cancer. Methods -A retrospective study of a series of 189 patients. The descriptive variables were age and gender, and for outcome were type of resection, number of lymph nodes resected, free margins, the need for colostomy, complications, operative time and hospital stay. They were analyzed using… Show more

“…For instance, studies have emerged since the adoption of laparoscopy for colorectal operations that have shown that it can shorten hospital stay, yielding oncologically adequate resection, with no evident differences in postoperative complications or hospital mortality when compared with a traditional open approach. Because of studies like these, laparoscopy is now considered a reasonable alternative to an open approach in colorectal resection [ 7 , 8 ]. Moreover, other reviews have already demonstrated robotic rectal surgery to be safe and feasible [ 9 11 ], although there are no published studies demonstrating its superiority over the laparoscopic approach mainly due to the lack of randomized control trials.…”

“…In metastatic disease and in stage IV, the survival rate at five years is 10% 18 . In light of this information, one can say that the results presented here were satisfactory because, although the series is made by 83% of patients with stages III and IV, the rate of overall survival at five years was 72.2%, and the average length of survival was 38.27 months 18 , 19 , 29 .…”
