|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Colon Cancer||Procedure: D2 radical operation Procedure: Complete mesocolic excision (CME)||Not Applicable|
Our study design is a two-arm, parallel-group, single-blind randomized clinical trial. The enrolled colon cancer patients would be divided into the intervention group (CME group) and control group (D2 radical operation group).
The postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy is determined by the pathological results. For patients of stage Ⅲ and patients of stage Ⅱ with unfavorable histologic features, six months of adjuvant chemotherapy of XELOX or fluorouracil-based regimen are recommended.
The postoperative examination should be performed every four months in the first two years and every six months in the following three years, to exclude local recurrence and distant metastasis.
Our study is expected to last five years, of which two years for recruiting patients, three years for follow-up.

Active Comparator: D2 radical operation group
In D2 radical operation group(D2), the mesocolon should be removed and the dissection involves the paracolon and intermediate lymph nodes, which along the feeding vessels.
Procedure: D2 radical operation
In D2 radical operation group(D2), the lymph node dissection is based on ligating the supplying vessels close to the right-side of superior mesenteric vein and clean up the surrounding lymph node and adipose tissue.
Experimental: CME group
In complete mesocolic excision group (CME), in addition to D2 dissection, the whole mesocolon, from ascending colon to right half transverse colon, as well as the central lymph nodesmshould be entirely removed.
Procedure: Complete mesocolic excision (CME)
In complete mesocolic excision group (CME), the dissecting extent includes the lymphatic and fat tissues surrounding the root of ascending mesocolon, which situated on the surface of superior mesenteric vein, and the root of right half of transverse mesocolon, which situated on the surface of pancreas neck.
