Fully laparoscopic right colectomy for caecal tumor with “vessels first’ approach
Over the last few years, laparoscopic colorectal surgery has increased exponentially worldwide. When combined with an enhanced recovery program, a significant reduction in the length of hospital stay can be achieved, coupled with an early return to normal activities for the patient.
This is the case of a 68-year-old obese woman with a BMI of 30 presenting with a caecal tumor. Her major co-morbidities are chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and high blood pressure. The patient complained of chronic abdominal pain and presented a positive fecal occult blood test. Colonoscopy showed a caecal tumor. Biopsy confirmed an adenocarcinoma. CT-scan did not show any distant metastasis. A full laparoscopic approach with a medial-to-lateral and ‘vessels first’ approach is shown.
