Abstract

Performing laparoscopic surgery for colorectal cancer and early gastric caner has recently been rapidally increasing. We report here on our experiences of 3 cases of laparoscopic combined resection for synchronous colorectal cancer with early gastric cancer. Case 1) An 87-year-old male had synchronous right colon cancer along with early gastric cancer, and he underwent laparoscopic right colectomy with laparoscopic assisted distal gastrectomy. Case 2) A 49-year-old male had synchronous rectal cancer with early gastric cancer, and he underwent laparoscopic abdominoperineal resection and totally laparoscopic distal gastrectomy with delta anastomosis. Case 3) A 76-year-old female had synchronous sigmoid colon cancer with early gastric cancer, and she underwent laparoscopic low anterior resection with laparoscopic assisted distal gastrectomy. The laparoscopic approach for synchronous cancer can be a treatment option for selected cases.
