Intracorporeal Anastomosis Accelerates Bowel Function in Comparison to Extracorporeal Anastomosis in Laparoscopic Right Hemicolectomy – a Randomized Control Trial.

Overview

Both extracorporeal and intracorporeal anastomosis in laparoscopic right hemicolectomy are renowned and performed worldwide. Many observational studies show conflicting results which method is better. This randomized control trial aimed to assess which technique is superior.
