Context: Endoscopic self-expandable metal stents (SEMSs) are the bridge of obstructive colorectal cancer surgery. The debate is still open on whether the procedure and effects can be the same between the SEMS combined obstructive colon cancer resection and nonobstructive colon cancer resection, both of which were under laparoscopic. Aims: This retrospective study was designed to compare whether the same effects could be achieved in both resections. Settings and Design: The retrospective analysis was from September 2016 to November 2017. In the observation group (OG), 20 patients hospitalized for obstruction of the left colon cancer were included, who received obstructive colon cancer laparoscopic resection (LR) combined with SEMS insertion. In control group (CG), 20 patients were randomly selected, who underwent nonobstructive colon cancer LR during this period. Subjects and Methods: The differences between the two groups were compared, including operation time, intraoperative blood loss, the number of removed lymph nodes, postoperative anal exhaust time, and hospital stay. Results: Both groups were comparable in the age, gender, weight, the distribution of tumor, lymph node metastasis, tumor, node, and metastasis staging, operation time, intraoperative blood loss, the number of removed lymph nodes, and postoperative anal exhaust time. The hospital stay was 15.2 ± 1.3 days and 14.2 ± 1.5 days in OG and CG, respectively, and it was longer in OG than that of in CG (P = 0.032). Conclusions: Obstructive colon cancer LR combined with SEMS insertion was a safe and feasible radical treatment strategy. The same level of procedure and effects could be achieved, compared to that of nonobstructive colon cancer LR.
