BACKGROUND: There is still no consensus on the treatment of synchronous multiple primary colorectal cancers (CRCs). In this study, we aimed to compare the efficacy and safety of laparoscopic-assisted versus traditional open surgery for multiple primary CRCs.
METHODS: Between March 2006 and March 2018, 115 patients who suffered from synchronous multiple primary CRC with clinical stage among T1-4N0-2M0 were included. Efficacy and safety of laparoscopic-assisted group (n=75) and traditional open group (n=40) were compared. All patients were followed up every 6 months and were recorded the survival.
RESULTS: Two patients were converted to open surgery in the laparoscopic-assisted group. Both length of total and postoperative hospital stay were significantly shorter in the laparoscopic-assisted group than the traditional open group (median 16 vs 19 days, p = 0.004; median 10 vs 12 days, p = 0.006, respectively). The laparoscopic-assisted group yielded less blood loss (median 100 vs 125 mL, p = 0.003), shorter postoperative exhaust time but longer operation time (median 230 vs 197 mins, p = 0.031) than the traditional open group. There was no significant difference on the overall survival and disease-free survival between two groups.
CONCLUSION: Our results suggested that laparoscopic-assisted surgery is a more efficacious, relatively safer and minimally invasive treatment for synchronous multiple primary CRCs. Further randomized controlled trials with larger sample sizes are needed to strengthen the conclusion of this study.
