Wound closing method with 2‑octyl cyanoacrylate after single-incision laparoscopic surgery for colorectal cancer
The use of 2‑octyl cyanoacrylate (CA) for the umbilical wound after single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) for colorectal cancer has not been described.
A consecutive experience of SILS for colorectal cancer is presented. Three hundred sixty-four patients (172 women) were treated with SILS for colorectal cancer between December 2010 and December 2015. Our institution introduced CA in September 2012. The data of patients treated with CA were compared to a historical group who underwent standard sutured skin closure with thin adhesive strips (AS) at our institution. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention criteria were used for the diagnosis of superficial surgical site infection (SSI).
Of these 364 patients, 20 patients (5.5%) were converted to laparotomy including the extension of the skin incision longer than 3 cm. In 344 patients completed with SILS, CA was used in 247 patients. Superficial SSI occurred in two patients (0.81%) with CA and one (1.03%) with AS. No patients completed with SILS suffered wound dehiscence in this series. There were no significant differences in wound-related complication rate between the two groups.
CA provides sufficient wound closure in SILS for colorectal cancer. SILS with CA has the possibility to provide a lower superficial SSI rate in patients with colorectal cancer.
