Only 18 cases of recurrence at the sites of cannula insertion after laparoscopy have been reported in the literature, ten of them in the past year. The period between laparoscopic surgery and presentation of wound metastasis varies widely, from 7 days to 10 months; the lesions are typically hard, craggy and painful. The most likely mechanism is direct implantation of viable exfoliated tumour cells but three aspects specific to laparoscopy may also be important. First, there may be increased… Expand
Laparoscopic Approaches to Malignant Disease
TLDR
Histological examination of resected specimens has provided data suggesting that the lymph node clearance and excision margins achieved laparoscopically may be comparable to those obtained using conventional surgical techniques, but the loco-regional recurrence rates consequent upon the laparoscopic approach are not yet known. Expand
Wound recurrence after laparoscopic colectomy for cancer
TLDR
T tumor recurrence within trocar sites where neither the instrumentation nor the wound edges have been exposed directly to the cancer specimen strongly suggests that laparoscopic surgery was a cause of dissemination of tumor cells into the peritoneal cavity. Expand
Port-Site Recurrences in Laparoscopic Surgery
TLDR
Browsing through ancient medical literature revealed some interesting communications about the pathogenesis of port-site recurrences in laparoscopic surgery, which led to the development of the Mikulicz procedure, which involved exteriorization of a colonic cancer through a small incision to allow extracorporeal resection.

Potential for Abdominal Wall Implantation After Laparoscopic Procedures of the Hepatobiliary Tract

TLDR
Hepatobiliary malignancies are often unsuspected at routine laparoscopic operations, and time-honored surgical principles apply to the management of patients at risk for early and aggressive recurrences. Expand
The pathogenesis of port-site recurrences
TLDR
Prospective studies now show that it is possible to keep the incidence of abdominal wall metastases to about 1%—which is comparable to that seen m open surgery—by the use of a meticulous operating technique and preventive measures. Expand
Port site tuberculosis following laparoscopic cholecystectomy
TLDR
A rare case of port site seeding of tuberculosis in a 65-year-old woman following laparoscopic cholecystectomy is reported on. Expand
Trocar site metastasis of gall bladder cancer after laparoscopic cholecystectomy
TLDR
The patient and the only other published similar case in the international literature would emphasize the use of tissue retrieval bags, which can prevent such complications by forming a barrier between the abdominal wall and the removed specimen. Expand

TLDR
If detected during laparoscopy early conversion to open procedure is recommended, and if diagnosed later, however, to contemplate further radical operation depending on histopathology would be unwise as a universal approach. Expand
Laparoscopy in Colorectal Malignancies: Current Concepts
TLDR
Concerns remain regarding potential violation of principles of oncologic surgery, technical aspects of performing the procedure, adequate staging capability, and existing learning curves, so investigators embarked on conducting multicentric randomized controlled trials to compare the effect of laparoscopic colorectal surgery and open surgery for coloreCTal malignancy in terms of recurrence and survival.

  • 1995
TLDR
The interval between resection of the colonic adenocarcinoma and diagnosis of the recurrence was short, suggesting that intraperitoneal dissemination and tumour implantation on surgical wounds may represent the principal mechanism of recurrence after laparoscopic surgery. Expand
