Minimal access laparoscopic surgery for treatment of ulcerative colitis and familial adenomatous polyposis coli in children and adolescents

Academic Article

Abstract

  • BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic restorative proctocolectomy is standard surgical treatment for patients with ulcerative colitis (UC) and familial adenomatous polyposis coli (FAP). Scar burden can be minimized by reducing the number of laparoscopic ports. The aim of this study is to review the authors' experience with reduced-port laparoscopy in this setting and to compare it with conventional laparoscopy using multiple ports.
