Brief Summary:
In this study, the investigators have compared the clinical outcomes of the laparoscopic and open right hemicolectomy within enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) programs in the treatment of right-sided colon cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Colon Cancer Procedure: Laparoscopic right hemicolectomy plus ERAS Procedure: Open right hemicolectomy plus ERAS Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

This study was a prospective, single-center, randomized control trial. Including criteria were (1) Age between 18 and 75 years; (2) Histologically confirmed right-sided colon adenocarcinoma;(3) Clinical stage I-III; (4) Performance status (ECOG) 0-1; (5) Adequate hematological, hepatic and renal function. Patients operated on as an emergency, or with tumours in the transverse colon, or with other previous malignancy within 5 years were excluded.

All particapants were recruited and randomly assigned to receive 3D-laproscopic or open right hemicoloectomy. All patients were treated with an ERAS protocol. The primary end-point was the incidence of postoperative complications within 30 days. Complications were diagnosed and classified according to the Clavien-Dindo classification. The secondary end-points were ERAS adherence, readmissions, reoperations, hospital length of stay, mortality, and survivals. The study was approved by the Ethics Committee of Zhongshan Hospital, Fudan University, Shanghai, China. Written informed consent was obtained for patients to participate the study. This study followed the Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials (CONSORT) reporting guideline.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. incidence of postoperative complications [ Time Frame: 30 days from surgery ]
    The incidence of postoperative complications within 30 days according to the Clavien-Dindo classification

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. overall survival [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    Time from randomization to deaths resulting from any reason

  2. disease-free survival [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    Time from randomization to recurrence at any site or deaths resulting from any reason

  3. operative mortality [ Time Frame: 30 days post operatively ]
    Deaths related to surgery within 30 days from surgery

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. operative time [ Time Frame: Day 1 ]
    Time from start of incision to finish of abdomial closure

  2. estimated blood loss [ Time Frame: Day 1 ]
    Blood loss will be measured according to the suction and the weight of wet gauze, and then minus the irrigation.

  3. number of retrieved lymph nodes [ Time Frame: 1 week post operatively ]
    Numbers according to the pathological report

  4. postoperative hospital stay [ Time Frame: 30 days post operatively ]
    The postoperative hospital stay is defined as the number of date from the first day after operation to discharge.
