Abstract

This chapter relates about surgical strategies in rectal cancer. Laparotomy, laparoscopy, SILS and robotics are detailed as the respective indications for all them. Then are described the different approaches to early cancers, to cancers requiring operation at the first diagnosis, and finally for cancer that are considered as nonresectable at the first evaluation, suggesting multidisiplinar treatments. Downstaging and downsizing are described.
