Advanced minimally invasive (traditional, laparoscopic and robot-assisted) methods of surgical treatment of diseases of the right colon. А review of the literature



If conventional laparoscopy in colon diseases treatment has recently become a well-recognized technique, preferable by most specialists over the world, the feasibility of robotic operations is still questioned. This is due to the relatively recent introduction of this technique and it is not as wide spread as opposed to conventional laparoscopic surgery. Currently, the literature shows the results of many studies comparing these techniques for operations on the colon. In our article, we present a review of the current literature, which presents the comparative analysis of the short-term outcomes of robotic and conventional laparoscopic surgery of the right colon.
