Official Title: Right-sided Colon Tumor, Laparoscopic and Open Surgery, in an ERAS Protocol

Further study details as provided by Ulf Gustafsson, Karolinska Institutet:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pathological Anatomic diagnosis (PAD) on a tumor biopsy [ Time Frame: day of surgery ]

    After PAD result, malign or benign tumor, type of malign tumor,tumor growth, stage, lymphatic recharge.

    Right selection of patients to laparoscopic versus open surgery in relation to PAD result?

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Length of hospital stay, days [ Time Frame: 30 days after surgery ]
    Compare laparoscopic versus open surgery

  • C - reactive protein [ Time Frame: 1-7 days after surgery ]
    Inflammation answer laparoscopic versus open surgery

Other Outcome Measures:
  • Immobilizing patient after surgery [ Time Frame: 4 -10 hours after surgery ]
    After laparoscopic versus open surgery

  • Leakage of anastomosis [ Time Frame: 0 - 30 days after surgery ]
    Compare laparoscopic versus open surgery
