  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Lymph node dissection for cancer of the transverse and descending colon can be performed laparoscopically according to the investigation of the experiences and the improvements of technical aspects. However, the sur-geon must be well trained in the laparoscopic techniques to be able to perform this procedure safely. Thus great care must be taken for the safety of the patient, and the surgeon should not hesitate to convert to extracorporal lymph node dessection or open surgery when the needs arises.
