summary/abstract:

OBJECTIVE : To evaluate the safety, feasibility and efficacy of Laparoscopic prophylactic treatment of familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP).

METHODS : Perioperative data and surgical outcomes of 11 FAP patients who underwent laparoscopic surgery between January 2012 and June 2014 in our hospital were analyzed retrospectively. Results 2: Patients had laparoscopic total proctocolectomy with ileostomy, and 9 patients had laparoscopic total colectomy with ileorectal anastomosis. The median number of harvested lymph nodes was 36 (range, 21~46). The mean operating time was 330 minutes with a range of 240 to 380 minutes. Blood loss ranged from 90 to 200 ml with a median being 150 ml. The median incision length was 4 (3-5) cm. The bowel function recovered by the third (range from 2~4 day) postoperatively. The follow-up time of these patients were 3~32 months (median 20 months) respectively and no local recurrence or distant metastases were found.

CONCLUSION : Laparoscopic prophylactic treatment for FAP can be performed safely and effectively with the advantage of minimal invasion by experienced surgeons.
