Many investigators have found that relatively wound-limiting interventions, such as a laparoscopic cholecystectomy for benign lesions or a laparoscopic total mesorectal excision (TME) for a malignant tumour,[sup.20,21] are associated with a tempered systemic inflammatory response and better preservation of the postoperative immune function when compared to open techniques.
Substantial improvements have been made in the treatment of rectal cancer in the past two decades because of earlier diagnosis, improved efficacy and delivery of chemotherapy, and the adoption of advanced surgical techniques such as laparoscopic total mesorectal excision (TME).
