Abstract

In recent times, the development of minimally invasive techniques in clinic, such as laparoscopic and endoscopic surgeries, is remarkable. Compared with traditional open surgery, minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is less in surgical trauma, less post-operative pain and a shorter convalescence for patients. In the last ten years, in particular, laparoscopic colorectal surgery has witnessed a shift from open surgery to the laparoscopic approach.
