Abstract

[Extract from Preface] The main studies listed in each chapter were carefully selected as to reflect the critical knowledge essential in each of the important steps to overcome the main challenges toward the success in achieving the best possible outcomes in rectal cancer patient care. However, the main original contribution of the thesis was demonstrated clearly in "Chapter 3: Laparoscopic surgery for rectal cancer" where the proposed laparoscopic pull-through with coloanal anastomosis was highlighted. The chapter showed a prospective comparative study comparing all aspects of the two techniques; laparoscopic ultralow anterior resection versus laparoscopic pull-through with coloanal anastomosis for rectal cancers. All the published studies involved in each chapter of the thesis were carefully illustrated in their original format with my great respect to the international peer-review. Nevertheless, each chapter contained the overview aiming to state the connectivity of the ideas for each specific detail contained in each chapter. Despite the fact that the majority of the studies were conducted in high-volume, specialized centers, it was a real challenge to organize prospective studies for highly specific research questions over the limited time of my doctorate degree study.
