Cancer Biology Relating to Minimal Access Management

  • Jonathan C. Salo


The introduction of laparoscopic colon resection for colon carcinoma in the 1990s was accompanied by a series of case reports of port site recurrences which appeared to occur with alarming frequency [1–8]. These reports tempered the initial enthusiasm for laparoscopic colectomy for colon cancer. They also prompted several lines of laboratory and clinical investigation, including animal experiments which attempted to replicate the cancer biology of laparoscopic cancer surgery, prospective accumulation of data regarding laparoscopic colon resection, and finally the organization and execution of several large-scale randomized clinical trials comparing laparoscopic and open resection for colorectal cancer.
