  • Although decreased adhesion formation is one of the accepted advantages of laparoscopic colorectal surgery, no prospective studies have been done to support this claim. Therefore, we prospectively assessed adhesion formation following laparoscopic anterior resection of the rectum in a porcine model. Five domestic female pigs underwent the procedure with a double-stapled intracorporeal anastomosis. After completion of the laparoscopic procedure, 50 cm of ileum was retrieved through the right… CONTINUE READING
