SUMMARY Objective: The application of laparoscopic colectomy for colorectal carcinoma has been disputable regarding its efficacy as an oncological procedure. The aim of this study was to assess the early and long-term results of laparoscopic colectomy for malignant disease. Method: Between 1990 and 1997, 243 patients underwent laparoscopic colectomy for colon carcinoma, in our center. Morbidity and mortality data were analyzed retrospectively along with disease-free and overall patient survival. Results: Laparoscopic colectomy was successfully completed in 216 of 243 patients (89%). A perioperative morbidity rate of 22% and mortality rate of 1.4% were observed. The overall estimated 1, 2, 3, 5, and 7- year survival rates were 92%, 82%, 74%, 65%, and 45%, respectively. Only one case ( (EN)
