  • BackgroundThe aim of this study is to compare the short-term results between robotic-assisted low anterior resection (R-LAR), using the da Vinci® Surgical System, and standard laparoscopic low anterior resection (L-LAR) in rectal cancer patients. [...] Key Method Patient characteristics, perioperative clinical results, complications, and pathologic details were compared between the groups. Moreover, macroscopic grading of the specimen was evaluated.Expand Abstract
