An international randomised phase II trial comparing surgical outcomes of robotic-assisted right hemicolectomy versus laparoscopic-assisted hemicolectomy for resection of adenocarcinoma of the caecum, ascending or proximal transverse colon
Australasian Gastro-Intestinal Trials Group (AGITG)
Participants will be randomly allocated to receive either robotic or laparoscopic surgery for the surgical treatment of their cancer. There will be a two in one chance that patients are allocated to receive robotic surgery. This study will evaluate the short and longer term outcomes, quality of life, cost effectiveness and surgeons’ experience with the robotic surgery approach.
