Laparoscopic complete mesocolic excision (CME) for transverse colon cancer is technically challenging. Robotic technology has been developed to reduce technical limitations of laparoscopy. Yet, no data are available on the role of robotic approach for CME of transverse colon cancer. The aim of this study is to evaluate the feasibility and short-term outcomes of robotic CME in this subset of colon cancer.

During the past decade, the concept of complete mesocolic excision (CME) has emerged as a possible strategy to minimize recurrence for right colon cancers. The purpose of this study was to compare rob...
Complete mesocolic excision improves the long-term outcome of colon cancer but might carry a risk of bowel dysfunction.
The aim of the study was to evaluate the oncological outcomes of complete mesocolic excision (CME) in colon cancer patients.
This study was designed to compare the short- and long-term outcomes between elderly and middle-aged patients who underwent laparoscopic complete mesocolic excision for right colon cancer.
The concept of Complete Mesocolic Excision (CME) was introduced by Hohenberger et al to standardize colonic resection within an intact mesocolic envelop (1). The three main components are - 1) mainta...
The aim of this study is to compare between complete mesocolic excision with central vascular ligation and conventional surgery of colon cancer regarding number of harvested lymph nodes, s...

Right sided hemicolectomy is the standard type of operation for cancers in the caecum, the ascending colon.The aim of this study was to compare between laparoscopic and open complete mesoc...
Randomized, multicenter, phase III trial to compare the short and long outcomes of laparoscopic CME with open CME in treating patients with locally advanced colon cancer.
The segment of LARGE INTESTINE between the CECUM and the RECTUM. It includes the ASCENDING COLON; the TRANSVERSE COLON; the DESCENDING COLON; and the SIGMOID COLON.
The segment of LARGE INTESTINE between TRANSVERSE COLON and the SIGMOID COLON.
The segment of LARGE INTESTINE between ASCENDING COLON and DESCENDING COLON. It passes from the RIGHT COLIC FLEXURE across the ABDOMEN, then turns sharply at the left colonic flexure into the descending colon.
Excision of a portion of the colon or of the whole colon. (Dorland, 28th ed)
The artery supplying nearly all the left half of the transverse colon, the whole of the descending colon, the sigmoid colon, and the greater part of the rectum. It is smaller than the superior mesenteric artery (MESENTERIC ARTERY, SUPERIOR) and arises from the aorta above its bifurcation into the common iliac arteries.
Colon or Colorectal cancer is the growth of malignant polyps on the colon, bowel, anus and rectum. Growths in these locations can be benign, and removed by colonoscopy, but they have a risk of becoming malignant. About 10 per cent of bowel cancer...
