	abstract = {Minimally invasive approach advantages for colorectal resection has been reported in many studies (1). It is well known today that robotics in colorectal surgery provide a 3-dimensional vision, 4 degrees of intuitive movements and a stable vision disabling hands movements. However, experience is still limited and short and long-term outcomes of colorectal resection remain controversial, especially in the elderly patients (2). Among surgical community, it is believed that in this latter sub group of patient benefits of minimally invasive approach might be lower compared with the rest of the population. However, regarding this issue the literature is scarce.},
