Hand-assisted laparoscopic right colectomy: a consideration of hand-device placement and trocar arrangement



Hand-assisted laparoscopic right colectomy: a consideration of hand-device placement and trocar arrangement



Colorectal Disease 15(7): 910-911



We read the recent article reporting a randomized controlled trial comparing hand-assisted laparoscopic colectomy (HALC) with total laparoscopic colectomy for right-sided colonic cancer [1]. We believe it is an important study demonstrating the safety and feasibility of HALC for this condition and we would like to make the following comments focused on hand-device placement and trocar arrangement.This article is protected by copyright.
