Visceral obesity is associated with outcomes of total mesorectal excision for rectal adenocarcinoma
General obesity, measured by the body mass index (BMI), increases the technical difficulty of total mesorectal excision (TME) but does not affect oncologic outcomes. The purpose of this study is toExpand
