Article Abstract

Minimally invasive colectomy and the risk of anastomotic leak

Authors: Niall D. Kennedy, Des C. Winter


With the current development of robotic assisted, natural orifice and single-incision surgery, the finer details of the original minimally invasive surgery are being explored with comparisons made to open surgery. This is of unques-tionable importance for the continued development of the laparoscopic approach for better patient care.
