Keywords Complete mesocolic excision; Central vascular ligation; Colon surgery; Arterial stump measurement; Computed tomography
Core Tip This is the first study to assess arterial stump measurement as a tool for comparative analysis between complete mesocolic excision and non-standardized colonic surgery. We demonstrated its benefit as a tool for evaluating surgical quality, mainly due to its correlation with a major prognostic factor. It is a simple and reproducible measurement on routine computed tomography scans without metallic markers. We showed that the central vascular ligation can be performed without extensive D3 lymphatic dissection.
