Surgical management of colon cancer

, : Surgical management of colon cancer. Current Gastroenterology Reports 4(5): 414-419

The primary mode of therapy for colon cancer continues to be surgery. Although little has changed in the technical aspects of colonic resection, a great deal of research has taken place to develop procedures that enhance staging of disease, optimize postoperative recovery, and improve outcomes in obstructed patients without compromising cancer-related morbidity and mortality. This review explores the current use of laparoscopy, sentinel node biopsy, intraoperative ultrasound, and colonic stents in the elective and emergent management of colon cancer.
