Scientific Tracks Abstracts: J Univer Surg


14 cases of rectal cancer were treated laparoscopically along with 16 cases by traditional open abdomino perineal resection (APR) from Jan 2011 till Dec 2017. The morbidity and length of hospital stay for the laparoscopic group was low along with reduced pain and early return to work. The surgical outcomes in terms of wound healing, proper lymph node clearance along with the tumour were similar in both the groups. Stage 1 and Stage 2 diseases were taken in this study. The operating time was more in the laparoscopic group (4 hrs : 2.5 hrs) but the blood loss was more in the open group (670 mL: 920 mL). The post operative follow up of both groups in terms of quality of life are similar. Patients who underwent Laparoscopic APR joined work in 15.5 days while those with open APR joined work after 28 days.
