Short term benefits for laparoscopic colorectal resection.
TLDR
If the long-term oncological results of Laparoscopic and conventional resection of colonic carcinoma show equivalent results, the laparoscopic approach should be preferred in patients suitable for this approach to colectomy. Expand
Surgical therapy of oesophageal carcinoma
TLDR
Although it may be possible to further reduce postoperative complications and mortality, the chances of improving the long‐term prognosis of patients with oesophageal carcinoma seem small. Expand
Inflammatory response after laparoscopic and conventional colorectal resections – results of a prospective randomized trial
TLDR
The less intense inflammatory response may be an indicator of the milder surgical trauma inflicted by laparoscopic than conventional colorectal resection. Expand
Monocyte deactivation-rationale for a new therapeutic strategy in sepsis
TLDR
It is demonstrated that there is a biphasic immunologic response in sepsis: an initial hyperinflammatory phase is followed by a hypo-inflammmatory one, which is associated with immunodeficiency which is characterized by monocytic deactivation, which has been called “immunoparalysis”. Expand
Postoperative pain and fatigue after laparoscopic or conventional colorectal resections
TLDR
This study confirms that analgetic requirements are lower and pain is less intense after laparoscopic than after conventional colorectal resection, and patients also experience less fatigue after minimal invasive surgery. Expand
Pulmonary function following laparoscopic or conventional colorectal resection: a randomized controlled evaluation.
TLDR
Pulmonary function is better preserved after laparoscopic than after conventional colorectal resection, and Pulmonary complications may be reduced after Laparoscopic resections because of the better postoperative pulmonary function. Expand
Laparoscopic versus conventional colorectal resection: a prospective randomised study of postoperative ileus and early postoperative feeding
TLDR
The shorter duration of postoperative ileus allows earlier restoration of oral feeding after laparoscopic compared with conventional colorectal resection and therefore increases quality of life immediately after resection of coloreCTal tumours. Expand
PREOPERATIVE PARENTERAL FEEDING IN PATIENTS WITH GASTROINTESTINAL CARCINOMA
TLDR
The clinical results can be explained by the improvement in various indices of humoral and cellular immunocompetence and the protein status in the PPN group and their deterioration in the control group during the preoperative course. Expand
Pneumoperitoneum with carbon dioxide stimulates growth of malignant colonic cells.
TLDR
The insufflation of carbon dioxide promotes tumor growth compared with helium and control in a rat model, and alternative gases should be recommended in laparoscopic surgery for malignant diseases. Expand
‘Fast-track’ multimodal rehabilitation program improves outcome after laparoscopic sigmoidectomy: a controlled prospective evaluation
TLDR
Multimodal rehabilitation program with epidural analgesia, early oral feeding, and enforced mobilization may further improve the excellent results of laparoscopic sigmoidectomy and decrease the postoperative hospital stay. Expand
