Anastomotic leak is one of the common and serious complications after laparoscopic rectal cancer excision. Anastomotic leak not only causes abdominal infection and endangers life, but also promotes local recurrence of tumour. So, prevention of anastomotic leak is very important. Most surgeons like to perform an air test when the anastomosis is completed.

To compare short term outcomes of patients undergoing laparoscopic or robotic rectal cancer surgery.
Urinary dysfunction (UD) remains a significant complication of rectal cancer surgery. In modern surgical treatment for rectal cancer, multiple operative approaches are used. Such approaches include op...
Recent studies suggest better oncological results after open versus laparoscopic rectal resection for cancer. The external validity of these results has not been tested on a nationwide basis.
Total mesorectal excision (TME) has decreased the local recurrence rate and improved the overall survival of rectal cancer patients. However, urinary dysfunction remains a clinical problem after recta...
RATIONALE: Robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery may be a less invasive type of surgery for rectal cancer and may have fewer side effects and improve recovery. It is not yet known whether ...
The investigators designed the randomized prospective trial of comparing open and laparoscopic resection in locally advanced rectal cancer after preoperative chemoradiation in order to det...

The aim of this study is to compare laparoscopic versus open approach on the surgical treatment of mid and low-lying rectal cancer, both performed by the same surgical team with experience...
The purpose of this study is to examine the technical and oncological feasibility of laparoscopic surgery for rectal carcinoma
In screening and diagnostic tests, the probability that a person with a positive test is a true positive (i.e., has the disease), is referred to as the predictive value of a positive test; whereas, the predictive value of a negative test is the probability that the person with a negative test does not have the disease. Predictive value is related to the sensitivity and specificity of the test.
Positive test results in subjects who do not possess the attribute for which the test is conducted. The labeling of healthy persons as diseased when screening in the detection of disease. (Last, A Dictionary of Epidemiology, 2d ed)
Tumors or cancer of the RECTUM.
A virulent form of dengue characterized by THROMBOCYTOPENIA and an increase in vascular permeability (grades I and II) and distinguished by a positive pain test (e.g., TOURNIQUET PAIN TEST). When accompanied by SHOCK (grades III and IV), it is called dengue shock syndrome.
A projective test used to evaluate a broad range of personality variables including pathology of thought and perception. The subject's responses to inkblot prints are scored along with subjective interpretation by the test administrator.
