Objective To investigate the clinical effect of laparoscopic radical resection of colon cancer. Methods Patients with colon cancer who underwent radical resection during January 2000 to January 2004 in Sir Run Run Shaw Hospital (Medical College of Zhejiang University) were divided into open and laparoscopic groups for a non-randomized case-control study. All the patients were followed up and their clinical and pathological results were compared. Results No difference was seen between the two groups on the patients′ age, gender, lymph node numbers and Dukes staging. The laparoscopic group had a longer mean operation time [(182±62)min vs (141±37)min] and shorter hospital stay [(5.3±1.9)d vs (8.2±1.2)d]than the open group. All surgical margins were pathological negative. Post-operation follow up was 12-18 months (mean 21 months). No incision recurrence was found in neither group. As far the local recurrence and distal metastasis rate were similar in both groups. Conclusions Laparoscopic radical resection of colon cancer has minimal invasion and shorter recuperation than open procedure, the radicalness and either local recurrence or distal metastasis rate after surgery are similar when compared with open group.
