BackgroundLaparoscopic rectal cancer surgery aims to provide patients with curative resection while minimizing postoperative morbidity and mortality. This study used meta-analytical techniques to compare laparoscopic and open surgery as the primary treatment for patients with rectal cancer with regard to short-term and long-term outcomes.MethodsA literature search was performed on all studies between 1993 and 2004 comparing laparoscopic and open surgery for rectal cancer. Subgroup analysis was… Expand

InterventionProcedure
Integration of open and laparoscopic approaches for rectal cancer resection: oncologic and short-term outcomes
TLDR
Laparoscopic resection for rectal cancer can be attempted for most patients and conversion to open procedure does not compromise clinical or oncologic outcomes, and combining laparoscopic and open surgery optimizes resource use and results in at least equivalent outcomes. Expand

TLDR
Data gathered in this meta-analysis indicate that there are no oncologic differences between laparoscopic and open resections for treatment of primary rectal cancer. Expand
Long-term and Perioperative Outcomes of Laparoscopic and Open Surgery for Rectal Cancer
TLDR
There was no significant difference in complication and recurrence between laparoscopic and open surgery for rectal cancer in the study, and the duration of hospital stay of patients was statistically significantly lower in the Laparoscopic group than in the open surgery group. Expand
Short-term outcomes of laparoscopically assisted surgery for rectal cancer following neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy: a single-center experience.
TLDR
Laparoscopically assisted surgery following neoadjuvant CRT is safe for patients with rectal cancer and provides favorable short-term benefits but without compromising oncologic outcomes. Expand
Laparoscopic surgery for rectal cancer: short-term benefits and oncologic outcomes using more than one technique
TLDR
Both minimally invasive techniques used achieved excellent oncologic results in patients with rectal cancer, with the LA approach had slightly better short-term outcomes. Expand
Comparison of short-term oncologic outcomes following laparoscopic versus conventional open surgery for rectal cancer
TLDR
It is suggested that laparoscopic surgery is an acceptable alternative to conventional open surgery for selected patients with rectal cancer, and showed a similar short-term oncologic outcome toventional open surgery. Expand
Laparoscopic Versus Open Surgery Following Neoadjuvant Chemoradiotherapy for Rectal Cancer: a Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
TLDR
LS is associated with favorable short-term benefits, similar postoperative complication rate, and comparable pathological outcomes for rectal cancer after NCRT compared to OS despite a slight difference in the number of lymph nodes. Expand
Mid-term Results of Laparoscopic Surgery and Open Surgery for Radical Treatment of Colorectal Cancer
TLDR
The laparoscopic technique does not seem to present any disadvantages and is safe and feasible for the treatment of colorectal cancer. Expand
Laparoscopic Surgery for Rectal Cancer: Outcomes in 513 Patients
TLDR
It is shown that laparoscopic resection for RC is a feasible method at specialized high-volume centers and the long-term outcomes are at least as good as those from open surgery as long as the principles of oncologic surgery are respected and faithfully performed. Expand
Long-term outcomes of laparoscopic surgery versus open resection for middle and lower rectal cancer: an NTCLES study
TLDR
Laparoscopic and open surgery for middle and lower rectal cancer offer similar long-term outcomes and the continued use of laparoscopic surgery in these patients can be supported. Expand

Long-term results of laparoscopic versus open resections for rectal cancer for 124 unselected patients
TLDR
Long-term outcome after laparoscopic resection of rectal cancer was comparable with that after conventional resection, and oncologic surgical principles were respected. Expand
Laparoscopic versus conventional open resection of rectal carcinoma: A clinical comparative study.
TLDR
Laroscopic total mesorectal excision for rectal cancer is a feasible but technically demanding procedure, while oncologic results are comparable to the open surgery, with a favorable short-term outcome. Expand
A case-control-study comparing laparoscopic versusopen surgery for rectosigmoidal and rectal cancer
TLDR
It is shown that laparoscopic surgery for the cure of colorectal cancer is technically feasible, and that oncological short-term outcome does not differ from the results achieved by open techniques, however, prospective randomized trials are mandatory to evaluate the definite role of laparoscope surgery for malignancy. Expand
Outcome of Laparoscopic Surgery for Rectal Cancer in 101 Patients
TLDR
Preliminary data appear to suggest that rectal cancer resection can be performed by laparoscopy in accordance with established principles of cancer therapy and that port-site metastases are not a relevant clinical problem. Expand
A comparison of laparoscopically assisted and open colectomy for colon cancer.
TLDR
In this multi-institutional study, the rates of recurrent cancer were similar after laparoscopically assisted colectomy and open-colectomy, suggesting that the laparoscopic approach is an acceptable alternative to open surgery for colon cancer. Expand
Conventional approach x laparoscopic abdominoperineal resection for rectal cancer treatment after neoadjuvant chemoradiation: results of a prospective randomized trial.
TLDR
Larger number of cases and an extended follow-up are required to adequate evaluation of oncological results for patients undergoing laparoscopic abdominoperineal resection after chemoradiation for radical treatment of distal rectal cancer. Expand
Does Laparoscopic Abdominoperineal Resection of the Rectum Compromise Long-Term Survival?
TLDR
Laroscopic abdominoperineal resection of the rectum for cancer does not compromise cancer-specific survival outcomes and the patients avoid a large abdominal wound, which improves cosmesis and presumably is responsible for the significantly shorter length of stay. Expand
Results of laparoscopic versus open resections for non-early rectal cancer in patients with a minimum follow-up of four years.
TLDR
Long-term results after laparoscopic resection of rectal cancer were comparable to those after conventional resection, with a trend in favor of the Laparoscopic approach that does not reach a statistically significant difference, possibly due to the limited size of the sample. Expand
[Laparoscopic surgery of rectal cancer (comparative results of laparoscopic and open abdominal resection)].
TLDR
Survival of patients depends of depth of invasion into intestinal loop and lesion of lymphatic nodes, irrespective of surgical method. Expand
Determinants of outcomes in laparoscopic colorectal surgery
TLDR
Several preoperative factors that significantly affect outcomes in laparoscopic colorectal resections have been identified and consideration of these factors may help in case selection and estimation of operating time. Expand
