Right hemicolectomy is a standard surgical treatment used for the treatment of malignant neoplasms. The effectiveness of the technique depends upon the condition of the patient. Open right hemicolectomy includes the ascending colon, one-third of the transverse colon, fat and lymph nodes.
There are two stages of right hemicolectomy that involves the first stage and the end-to-side ileocolostomy. The Turnbull method is considered as a no-touch isolation technique, while the Barnes method is the physiologic resection of the colon in the right.
Colon resection surgery is the best right hemicolectomy surgery. The different indications for right hemicolectomy include both malignant and benign tumours. The malignant tumours are found in the cecum and appendix, while a malignant condition is also the adenocarcinoma of the right colon.
If the condition is benign, then it is best treated with laparoscopic surgery. However, the extent of colon resection surgery for malignant disease depends on the need of adequate oncologic lymphadenectomy and the tumour margin. The line of the resection varies depending upon the location of the lesion.
