Simultaneous Laparoscopic-Assisted Colorectal Resection and Nephrectomy
Journal of Minimally Invasive Surgery
Simultaneous laparoscopic surgery for colorectal cancer and coexisting abdominal disease is shown to be feasible. However, simultaneous laparoscopic colorectal resection and nephrectomy is rarely documented, and its feasibility is unknown. We report two cases of simultaneous colorectal resection for colorectal cancer and nephrectomy. In the first case, a 71-year-old female underwent laparoscopic right hemicolectomy for an ascending colon cancer and left nephrectomy for a left non-functioning
... non-functioning kidney. The second patient was a 77-year-old male with descending colon cancer and left renal cell carcinoma who underwent laparoscopic left hemicolectomy and left nephrectomy. The body mass indexes were 21.73 and 26.78 kg/m 2 , respectively, and operation time was 275 and 395 minutes. Blood loss was 300 and 250 cc, and the postoperative hospital stay was 8 and 10 days. In both cases, there was no postoperative morbidity or mortality. Simultaneous laparoscopic resection for colorectal cancer and nephrectomy is a feasible and safe procedure.
