Wide Excision In Right-Sided Colon Cancer Is Associated With Decreased Survival.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Nodal involvement is the most important prognostic factor in colon cancer. Although theoretically appealing, it is not known if wider mesenteric excision improves the oncological result. The aim of this retrospective study was to investigate whether wider mesenteric excision yields a superior oncological result.
