Postoperative Period

Postoperative management is as with the comparable open procedure. Patients receive prophylaxis for deep venous thrombosis and ambulation is begun on the first postoperative day. The nasogastric tube is removed once bowel function returns, and the diet is advanced accordingly. The drain is removed once output diminishes. The stents are removed between postoperative days 10 and 12 (as outpatient procedure).

A previously marked stoma site away from desired trocar sites should not compromise optimal port placement.
