Abstract
We report a successful laparoscopic resection of a cecal tumor in a 95-year-old Japanese man. The patient visited an initial hospital with a complaint of constipation in March 2014. Computed tomography scan and colonoscopy showed a stenotic ileocecal cancer with pericolic lymph node metastases, and he was referred to our department for management. Since his general condition was maintained, we performed a laparoscopic ileocecal resection with regional lymph node dissection for the patient. The operation achieved curative resection, and the tumor was diagnosed as a moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma and graded as pStage IIIa (pT3, pN0, pM0) according to the Japanese Classification of Colorectal Carcinoma, eighth edition. He was discharged on the 11th postoperative day without perioperative complications. Several large-scale randomized controlled trials (RCTs) revealed that laparoscopic surgeries for colorectal cancers have some advantages compared to open surgeries, including superior short-term outcomes and comparable long-term outcomes. Unfortunately, since these RCTs did not include enough elderly patients, the safety and feasibility of laparoscopic surgery for extremely elderly patients are still unknown. With respect to less-invasive procedures, these advantages of laparoscopic surgery are also thought to be the advantages for elderly colorectal cancer patients.
