Abstract

Inflation of CO2 during laparoscopic colorectal surgeries increases intra-abdominal pressure and pneumoperitoneum obviously effects intra-abdominal arteriovenous stream causing complications. Increased Intra Abdominal Pressure (IAP) causes decreased venous stream back and arteriol flow leading ischemic process on colon and anastomosis line. Ischemic segment could end with anastomosis leakage or colonic cast. We presented a case whom we performed laparoscopic low anterior resection due to rectum malignancy and improved colonic ischemia postoperatively due to pneumoperitoneum.
