- To describe and perform the individual steps of laparoscopic right hemicolectomy, including positioning, instrumentation and medial-to-lateral dissection.
- To be aware of different approaches to ileocolic anastomosis and to perform a stapled anastomosis after right colonic mobilisation.
- To describe and perform the individual steps of laparoscopic left hemicolectomy, including techniques for splenic flexure mobilisation. Specifically, the sub-IMV approach will be demonstrated and performed.
- To be aware and describe alternative approaches to laparoscopic right and left hemicolectomy.
