A larger prospective, randomized, multicenter trial by the Clinical Outcomes of Surgical Therapy (COST) Study Group showed similar long—term results.Between 1994 and 2001, 872 patients (435 patients in the laparoscopic arm) were randomized.The median follow—up time was 52 months and the primary endpoint was time to tumor recurrence.Analysis at three years demonstrated similar recurrence rates in the laparoscopic and open groups, 16% and 18%, respectively.Additionally, there was no difference in overall survival (86% in the laparoscopic group vs.85% in the open group).The authors have also recently published 5—year data from this original cohort demonstrating that overall and disease—free survival were
similar between the two treatment groups.Additionally, overall recurrence rates remain similar (19.4% laparoscopic group; 21.8% open group) (7,9).These survival data have been confirmed in the slightly larger European multicenter Colon cancer Laparoscopic or Open Resection (COLOR) trial that was designed to evaluate disease—free survival and overall survival 3 years after laparoscopic or open resection for colon cancer.For all stages, the 3—year overall and disease—free survival rates were not significantly different between groups.Local and distant recurrence rates were also similar (8).It should be noted that lymph node harvest is also similar between open and laparoscopic groups.The main criticisms of these trials center on the probability of selection bias when offering a laparoscopic approach to
those with cancer.
In fact, those with smaller tumors (amenable to smaller incisions) and those with tumors that involve only the colon (T3 and below) are most likely still the best candidates for laparoscopy
