Abstract

Objectives: This paper introduces the surgical procedure of “terminal ileum suspension” in the radical resection for low rectal cancer patients and evaluates the possibility of its clinical application.

Methods: This paper retrospectively analyzed the data of patients with low rectal cancer who underwent “terminal ileum suspension” during radical resection of rectal cancer (Dixon) in our hospital, and introduces the specific surgical procedures and key points of “terminal ileum suspension”. Observe the relevant conditions of patients during the operation, postoperative recovery and postoperative complications, and analyze the safety and feasibility of this operation (“terminal ileum suspension”).

Results: The operation of all 8 patients went smoothly, and no anastomotic leakage, intestinal obstruction, and open diversion of suspended terminal ileum were found. The application of “terminal ileum suspension” in the operation of low rectal cancer has achieved ideal clinical effect, without increasing the rate of anastomotic leakage and rehospitalization, reducing the proportion of the secondary return operation, and reducing the pain of the patients.

Conclusion: “Terminal ileum suspension” is a safe, effective and feasible surgical method for laparoscopic radical resection of low rectal cancer, which can be applied in clinical practice.
