BACKGROUND Robotic surgery was invented to overcome the demerits of laparoscopic technique. However, it is unclear whether robot-assisted colectomy (RAC) has significant clinical advantages over laparoscopically assisted colectomy (LAC) in treating colonic cancer. The aim of this study was to compare the surgical outcomes of RAC versus LAC for right-sided(More)
Although the vagina is considered a viable route during laparoscopic surgery, a number of concerns have led to a need to demonstrate the safety of a transvaginal approach in colorectal surgery. However, the data for transvaginal access in left-sided colorectal cancer are extremely limited, and no study has compared the clinical outcomes with a conventional(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate the technical feasibility, safety, and oncological outcomes of transumbilical single-incision laparoscopic surgery in patients with an uncomplicated appendiceal mucocele. METHODS A review of a prospectively collected database at the Kyungpook National University Hospital from January 2006 to September 2010(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated the short- and long-term outcomes of laparoscopic total proctocolectomy with ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (TPC/IPAA) for treatment of familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). Also, we assessed the oncologic outcomes in FAP patients with coexisting malignancy. METHODS From August 1999 to September 2010, 43 FAP patients with or without(More)
BACKGROUND As the use of a surgical robot allows for improved dexterity and visual field, we successfully conducted transabdominal intersphincteric resection (ISR) and perineal coloanal anastomosis for a very low lying rectal cancer. The aim of this study was to evaluate the technical feasibility of this procedure. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eight patients(More)
BACKGROUND A surgical robot (the da Vinci system) was developed to overcome the disadvantages of laparoscopic surgery, and applications of this system have been widely used. In this study, we present our standardized technique of robotic right colectomy with lymphadenectomy and intracorporeal anastomosis, with an assessment of feasibility in a series of 15(More)
PURPOSE Because predicting recurrence intervals and patterns would allow for appropriate therapeutic strategies, we evaluated the clinical and pathological characteristics of early and late recurrences of colorectal cancer. METHODS Patients who developed recurrence after undergoing curative resection for colorectal cancer stage I-III between January 2000(More)
