  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Although randomised controlled trials comparing laparoscopic with open surgery are currently being carried out in several countries, we still await the long-term (over 5 years) results. We describe the current issues on laparoscopic surgery for colorectal cancer, our long-term results and its indication for advanced cancer. 417 pa-tients with colorectal cancer underwent laparoscopic surgery during the last 9 years. Median follow-up was 40 months (range: 3-111 months). Twelve patients developed recurrences (liver: 5. local: 4. peritoneum: 3). No port site recurrence was observed.
