Abstract

Following the introduction and widespread acceptance of laparoscopic cholecystectomy, laparoscopic techniques have been applied to an increasing variety of general surgical procedures. Recently, laparoscopic procedures for resection of malignancy have begun to emerge, in particular laparoscopic assisted colectomy for carcinoma of the colon.1,2 In the cases reported here, metastatic tumour in the laparoscopy port sites is described as a potentially serious complication of laparoscopic procedures for resection of malignancy.
