Abstract

The postoperative follow-up has been achieved in all the patients up to 3-6 months, in 60 patients up to 2 years and in 35 patients up to 3 years. Two ventral hernias in the site of the supra-pubic incision, 1 metastasis on Trocar site, 2 local relapses and 1 parietal metastasis have been observed. The laparoscopic resection of the colon, either for malignant or for benign disease, can be performed with acceptable morbidity and mortality.
