I am pleased to announce the upcoming issue of JCM entitled *Laparoscopic and Robotic-Assisted Minimally Invasive Colorectal Surgery*.
The application of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) for colorectal surgery was widely accepted all over the world. Several clinical studies have confirmed the quick recovery after surgery and the non-inferior prognosis compared with the traditional open surgery. The advanced optic and energy devices facilitate the TME and CME procedures. Complete mesentery resection and preservation of nerve and vessels are necessary for colorectal surgery. So the optimization of surgical procedures, appropriate exposure to the surgical field, and accurate identification of related anatomy structures are the key factors for the quality of surgery. Besides, the transanal approach is a promising solution for obese patients with a narrow pelvis. Furthermore, the surgical site infection and the change in immune function are obviously different in MIS.
For this Special Issue, we encourage the related original researches, experiences of surgical techniques, or reviews about the MIS of colorectal surgery.
We look forward to receiving your submissions.
Dr. Liu Yang
