The comparable control group consisted of 35 patients (16 men, aged 51.5+13.9 years). RESULTS: operation time was 179.5+65.1 min, 266.9+71.8 min in controls. Blood loss was 64.7+33.7 ml, 181.8+120.4 ml in controls. No conversions occurred in the main group. In three patients of the main group preventive ileostomy was performed. There were 11 diverting stomas in the control group. Postoperative hospital stays were 9.1+2.7 days (12.9+3.4 days in controls). There were 2 (5.9%) postoperative

In the control group 3 (9.1%) complications (wound infection and haematoma) were detected. CONCLUSION: laparoscopic-assisted reversal of Hartmann's procedure promotes faster rehabilitation, its results are not worse than after open approach.
