A laparoscopic approach is increasingly regarded as a gold standard for resection of benign and malignant colonic lesions. Laparoscopic right hemicolectomy can include either an extracorporeal or intracorporeal anastomosis. The extracorporeal anastomosis is performed similar to an open approach and is therefore utilized more frequently. In this chapter, we will discuss the potential advantages and technical nuances of the intracorporeal approach.
