SURGICAL LAPAROSCOPY ENDOSCOPY & PERCUTANEOUS TECHNIQUES
Background: Laparoscopic abdominoperineal resection (APR) has been seldom studied apart from low anterior resections, and deserves to be separately analyzed. This study aims to compare perioperative and oncological outcomes of laparoscopic and conventional APRs performed for the treatment of mid and low rectal adenocarcinomas.
