Aim: Laparoscopic colorectal surgery has become widely performed in many centers today. We planned to present the first 65 cases in our clinic. Material and
Method: Sixty-five patients who underwent laparoscopic colorectal surgery between September 2014 and March 2018 were retrospectively reviewed. Cases
returning open surgery despite laparoscopic onset were excluded from the study. Demographic data, operative types, duration, tumor stages were recorded.
Results: 65 cases were included, 39 were male (60%), 26 were female (40%), mean age was 63.2 (40-81). Low anterior resection (LAR) in 20 cases (%30.7),
anterior resection (AR) in 19 cases (29,2%), right colectomy in 18 cases (27,6%), abdomino-perineal resection (APR) in 5 cases (7,7%), colloanal anastomosis
in 2 cases, total colectomy in 1 case (1.6%) were performed. It have been showed anastomotic leakage in 3 cases (4,6%), wound infection in 10 cases
(15.3%), 3 patient incisional hernia (4,6%), ureter injury in a patient (1.5%) and urethra injury in a patient (1.5%). There was no mortality. Discussion: Although
our experience with laparoscopic colorectal surgery is compatible with the literature and is not yet gold standard, we think that it gives better results than
open surgery due to its advantages.
