Keynote Lecture: SILS: where are we?

Learning objectives: SILS is the next step forward in the evolution of minimally-invasive surgery towards the natural orifice approach. This technique is technically demanding, however, increased colorectal surgeons experience in advanced laparoscopic procedures together with specifically designed commercially available devices and instruments provide an opportunity to progress. In this presentation you should learn how to: define terminology and technique of SILS; valuate the feasibility and safety; identify the potential advantages of SILS over standard laparoscopic colorectal surgery; analyze the morbidity; evaluate the results of SILS.
