    The aim of this study was to assess various intraoperative and postoperative complications associated with laparoscopic colorectal surgery.

    Specifically, the impact of surgical experience and procedure type on complications was analyzed.


    All patients who underwent laparoscopic surgery were analyzed by age, sex, surgical indications, procedure performed, procedure length, intraoperative and postoperative complications, incidence and causes for conversion, duration of postoperative ileus, and length of hospital stay.

    Patients were classified for type of procedure and chronologically into four consecutive groups.

    Procedures were also categorized into four different groups :

    • GI, total abdominal colectomies ;

    • GII, segmental resections ;

    • GIII, diverting procedures ;

    • GIV, others (abdominoperineal resection, Hartmann's creation or closure, anterior resection, and rectopexy).


    Between August 1991 and October 1995,167 patients of a mean age of 49.6 (15-88) years underwent laparoscopic colorectal procedures.

    All procedures were electively performed.

    Common indications for surgery included inflammatory disease in 70 (42 percent), neoplasia in 56 (33 percent), functional bowel disorders in 30 (18 percent), and other forms of colorectal disorders in 11 (7 percent) patients.

    The most significant variable affecting intraoperative laparoscopic complication rate was surgical experience measured as the time interval during which surgery was performed (P=0. (...)
