Right colectomy has been considered one of the most standardized and simple to perform surgical intervention among colorectal surgeons for years. Is it still true in the new millennium? We are properly in the new era of minimally invasive surgery and new technologies follow each other day after day. These new inputs necessarily involve colorectal surgery and above all minimally invasive colorectal surgery. Thus, we focused the special series on the role of these new evidences on performing a right colectomy.
