LOPEZ K, FRANCISCO et al. Single-port access right laparoscopic hemicolectomy for colon cancer. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2009, vol.61, n.6, pp. 566-570. ISSN 0718-4026. doi: 10.4067/S0718-40262009000600014.
A new laparoscopic technique allows a peritoneal access through a single umbilical port with less abdominal wall trauma and pain. We report a 64 years old male with a right colon adenocarcinoma, detected during a routine colonoscopy. The patient was subjected to a right laparoscopic hemicolectomy through a single SILS® Multiple Instrument Access Port, that can accommodate up to three instruments introduced through a 3 cm paraumbihcal incision. The surgical procedure was uneventful and the patient had a good postoperative evolution. The pathological study of the surgical piece confirmed the presence of an adenocarcinoma with invasion of the submucosa and without lymph node involvement.
