  • Look Inside

The aim of this study was to investigate the significance of laparoscopic colorectal surgery in the elderly. Laparoscopic colorectal surgery has been found to be feasible. Between January 1996 and February 1999. 49 pa-tients with colorectal cancer who were 75 years old or older underwent surgery. Of 49 patients. 15 underwent laparoscopic colectomy (LC) and 34 open colectomy (OC). We compared the peri- and post-operative course and complications in both groups. Results: In the LC group, operating time was longer and blood loss was less than in the OC group.
