Triple-port laparoscopic right hemicolectomy for malignancy: A feasible technique with the principles of complete mesocolic excision.

The technology of triple-ports laparoscopic surgery (TPLS) has been rarely reported on treating cancer malignancy in right hemicolectomy. TPLS is advanced in less incisions, less operators, less postoperative pain, a better cosmetic result with lower total costs, comparing to conventional laparoscopic surgery (CLS), which requires 4-6 ports. Here, we demonstrate the TPLS treatment on a male patient with a mass at hepatic flexure, and follow to discuss whether the surgery of TPLS on cancer of right hemicolectomy could be performed rigorously through complete mesocolic excision (CME). In addition, we discuss the possibility of TPLS a transition approach to more advanced Single port laparoscopic surgery (SPLS).
