A 28-year-old woman, who suffered from abdominal pain for 6 days, could no longer tolerate pain. She went to the emergency room of the Tung’s hospital for treatment. After examination, she found that her sigmoid colon have a tumor about 3 cm and caused the intestinal tract to completely obstruct. The large intestine surgery, Dr. Huang, using the temporary intestine ostomy of the left lower abdomen relieves the swelling and pain of the abdomen, so that the excretion in the intestine can be discharged first to avoid the rupture of the intestinal pressure.

Two weeks later, a 3 D laparoscopic sigmoid resection was performed. The tumor was excised and biopsied to confirm that it had the third stage of sigmoid colon cancer. Postoperative recovery was good. Seven days after his hospitalization, he was discharged from the hospital and resumed his rest and arranged to start chemotherapy. After three month, the patient underwent a closed operation with her ostomy. Currently, she only needs to check it regularly.

Dr. Huang of the Large Intestine and Rectal Surgery at Tung’s Hospital said that the case is younger and hopes not to leave a big scar on the abdomen. Therefore, with 3D laparoscopic sigmoid resection, because of the clear 3D field of view and high resolution, tumor resection can be operating completely. When you use it, you only need to open 4 small holes of about 1 cm. The wound is small, the bleeding is less, the recovery is fast, the appearance is not affected, and also the postoperative pain is greatly reduced.
