Abstract

The learning curve in laparoscopic colorectal surgery was evaluated using a case-mix adjusted Cumulative Sum (CUSUM) model analysis. A learning curve of 55 cases was evident for right-sided colonic resections versus 62 cases for left-sided resections. Readmission rates and postoperative complications remained unchanged throughout the series and were not dependent on operative experience.
