Özet

Introduction: Natural orifice surgery has been increasingly used in colon surgery since the early 2000s. However, it is rarely used for total colectomy. In this study, we aimed to retrospectively compare natural orifice specimen extraction (NOSE) with transabdominal specimen extraction in patients undergoing laparoscopic total colectomy.
