OBJECTIVE To investigate the safety of laparoscopic colorectal cancer resections in a nationwide population-based study. BACKGROUND Although laparoscopic techniques are increasingly used in colorectal cancer surgery, little is known on results outside trials. With the fast introduction of laparoscopic resection (LR), questions were raised about safety. (More)
Laparoscopic right hemicolectomy for colon cancer is associated with substantial morbidity despite the introduction of enhanced recovery protocols and laparoscopic surgery. Laparoscopic right hemicolectomy with an intracorporeal anastomosis (IA) is less invasive than laparoscopic assisted hemicolectomy, possibly leading to further decrease in post-operative(More)
Endoscopic surgery is known for its different eye–hand coordination and its learning curves. It encompasses complex and sensitive equipment that requires different maintenance and quality control. Despite the development of dedicated training programs and extensive research justifying the endoscopic revolution, the Dutch Health Care Inspectorate (DHI) [1](More)
INTRODUCTION Cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (CRS + HIPEC) is currently considered the standard of care for pseudomyxoma peritonei, mesothelioma and peritoneal metastases (PM) from colorectal cancer. CRS + HIPEC has also been suggested as a potential treatment option in PM of the much rarer small bowel cancer. Therefore,(More)
INTRODUCTION The potential contribution of psychological and anatomical changes to sexual dysfunction in female patients following short-term preoperative radiotherapy (5 x 5 Gy) and total mesorectal excision (TME) is not clear. Aim. In this study we assessed female sexual dysfunction in patients who underwent radiotherapy and TME for rectal cancer. MAIN(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the 10-year follow-up of a cohort of 141 patients operated between 1979 and 1981, and to analyse the prognostic significance of traditional tumour parameters, using a univariate and a multivariate analysis. DESIGN Prospective descriptive study. SETTING Department of Surgery, University Hospital Maastricht, the Netherlands. (More)
OBJECTIVE Laparoscopic single-port (SP) surgery uses only a single entry point for all instruments. The approach of SP has been applied in multiple laparoscopic disciplines owing to its improved cosmetic result. However, in SP surgery, instrument movements are further restricted, resulting in increased instrument collisions compared with standard multiport(More)
As the insight in evolution of colonic polyps in the general asymptomatic population continues, so does evolves the treatment of severe dysplastic polyps. With this knowledge of the possible, carcinogenic evolution and the upcoming of laparoscopy in the treatment of colorectal cancer, a combined laparoand endoscopic per-operative localization of the polyp,(More)
