Phase 2 Study of Efficacy of Single Incision (Embryonic NOTES) Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgery
After several randomized clinical trials, laparoscopic colon surgery has been performed
widely. As a minimal invasive approach, single Incision (Embryonic NOTES) colon surgery has
been attempted. Several studies reported the feasibility of single incision colon
surgery.However, there are not sufficient evidences for single incision colon surgery,
especially in colon cancer.
The investigators are researching the efficacy and safety of single incision laparoscopic
sigmoidectomy in sigmoid colon cancer. Harvested numbers of lymph node will be assessed for
the efficacy and postoperative morbidity and mortality will be assess for the safety.
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Harvested numbers of lymph node
Within the first 7 days (plus or minus 3 days) after surgery
