Abstract: Background: Transanal endoscopic microsurgery (TEM) and laparoscopic rectal resection are minimally invasive methods of surgery for rectal tumours. One aim of this thesis was to analyse the inflammatory response after minimally invasive surgery compared with open resection. Other aims were to investigate patient selection using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and endorectal ultrasound (ERUS) and to investigate the outcome of TEM for rectal cancer. Methods: Inflammatory mediators were measured ... more
