Hand-assisted laparoscopic total colorectal resection for familial adenomatous polyposis with coexisting rectal cancer

Hand-assisted laparoscopic total colorectal resection for familial adenomatous polyposis with coexisting rectal cancer

Surgical Endoscopy 15(5): 445-447

When familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) is diagnosed in a patient, prophylactic surgery must be performed whether colorectal cancer is present or not. Operations for FAP have been performed through a large median abdominal incision or an additional perineal incision, depending on the coexistence of rectal cancer. Recently, we reported a technique of laparoscopic rectal amputation without abdominal skin incision for patients with rectal cancer to minimize postoperative cardiac and respiratory complications [6]. In this article, we report a case of laparoscopically assisted proctocolectomy with ileostomy through a minimal abdominal and perineal skin incision performed by a hand-assisted procedure. The purpose of combining the perineal and laparoscopic approaches is to minimize the skin incision, while retaining a rate of cure and safety equivalent to those of conventional rectal amputation, by using the advantages of laparoscopic procedures, and to facilitate postoperative recovery and improve the quality of life for relatively young patients with FAP.
