Totally laparoscopic right hemicolectomy with transvaginal specimen extraction
We present our technique for totally laparoscopic right colectomy for locally advanced colon cancer with transvaginal specimen extraction. The patient was a 73-year-old female who presented with a biopsy proven cecal adenocarcinoma. We performed a right hemicolectomy using a 4 port approach with the patient in modified lithotomy position. Medial to lateral mobilization and early high ligation of the ileocolic pedicle were performed. The resected specimen was placed in a large retrieval bag.
With the patient positioned in modified lithotomy, a posterior culpotomy was made and the specimen removed intact through the vagina. The culpotomy was closed from the vaginal approach. A 60mm stapled side-to-side anastomosis was created intracorporeally to complete the procedure. The specimen was 52cm in length and contained a 3.2cm tumor and 13 lymph nodes. The patient's pathologic stage was T3N1.
