8 May 2020Robotic Right Hemicolectomy with D3 Lymphadenectomy, CME and Intracorporeal Anastomosis
Complete mesocolic excision (CME) was first described in May 2009 by Werner Hohenberger and his colleagues. It arose from the concept of Total Mesorectal Excision illustrated by Heald , and consists on sharp dissection of the visceral fascial layer from the parietal one, complete mobilization of the mesocolon with an intact fascia and true high ligation of the supplying arteries and draining veins at their origin. Current evidence suggests this technique is associated with better specimen quality, lower recurrence rates, higher disease-free survival, but also higher incidence of intraoperative injuries and surgical morbidity.
CME has become the standard of care in some groups, while in others is performed in subjective selected cases.
