Hand-assisted laparoscopic technique (HALS) in colorectal surgery (Case reports and review of the literature)



Hand-assisted laparoscopic technique (HALS) in colorectal surgery (Case reports and review of the literature)



Magyar Sebeszet 54(4): 230-234



Hand-assisted laparoscopic surgery (HALS) is a new technique in which the surgeon's hand is introduced to the abdominal cavity through a mini-laparotomy, while pneumoperitoneum is maintained. We describe the technique of HALS used successfully in the treatment of two patients of colorectal disease. We describe current literature and our initial clinical experience. Our conclusion is that, besides colorectal surgery, HALS technique may prove useful for other abdominal procedures as well; however its real value should be estimated in prospective randomized trials.
