Key Words Laparoscopic surgery; Systematic review; Meta-analysis; Colorectal cancer; Elderly patient
Core Tip Safety and effectiveness of laparoscopic surgery (LAC) in elderly has been unknown. A meta-analysis was performed of a systematic search of studies on an electronic database. Studies that compared LAC in elderly colorectal cancer patients with open colectomy (OC) were retrieved, and their short and long-term outcomes compared. Fifteen studies which had 1436 LAC and 1810 OC were identified. In short-term outcomes, blood loss, morbidity, incisional surgical site infection, bowel obstruction and cardiovascular complications were superior in LAC except operation time. There was no significant difference in long-term outcomes. LAC is an effective procedure for elderly with colorectal cancer.
